Freddas' Depression Glass

I swiped this off my daughters blog. She is a much better writer than I am.
My mother sent me this photo of a painting she had just finished last week. What you are seeing is pink dog wood depression glass. This luncheon set belonged to my Great Grandmother Freda. As seen in an old advertisement it originally sold in the 1930's for under three dollars. Freda earned it a piece at a time from the general store.
8 x 10 inches , Oils on masonite. I've been wanting to paint a picture of glass. I had fun with it and look forward to giving it another try. A friend recently gave me some beautiful Blinko Glass. I have so enjoyed watching the sun reflect through it.
