Art: PORCH FRONT LILACS (THE GRANDMOTHER ROCKER) by Artist Valerie Brock
*FRONT PORCH LILACS* JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO, WHILE VISITING MY GREAT GRANDMOTHERS HOMEPLACE, I CAME ACROSS TWO ROCKERS LIKE THE ONE BELOW, THAT HAD BELONGED TO HER AND MY GREAT GRANDFATHER. THESE GORGEOUS CHAIRS, BROUGHT TO MIND A TIME WHICH HAS BEEN LONG FORGOTTEN, THE DAYS OF THE FRONT PORCH FAMILY! I JUST HAD TO PAINT A CHEERY LILAC BOUQUET ON THE BACK OF THIS PARTICULAR CHAIR, IN AN ANTIQUE WHIMSICAL STYLE. I ADDED FOUR BUTTERFLIES, ONE FOR EACH OF MY DEAR GRANDMOTHERS, TWO GREAT GRANDMOTHERS AND MY MATERNAL AND PATERNAL GRANDMOTHERS. SO THESE LILACS ARE DEDICATED TO THE GENERATION WHOSE FRONT PORCH WAS AN ACTUAL ROOM, A ROOM WITH NO WALLS AND NATURES EVER CHANGING ART! I CAREFULLY CHOSE AN ANTIQUE STYLE CALICO FABRIC FOR THE SEAT AS WELL. I ENJOYED CREATING THIS WHIMSICAL PIECE FOR THE LILAC SHOW!
