Help Me Make a Decision????

You might remember a very excited post about winning
an original oil painting by Carole Stone?
Well, I have yet to give it a permanent home on any of 
the dining room walls.

This is because I feel it needs a friend.
It is too small to anchor the big wall where I would 
like to put it.  So it is leaning against the wall 
on the piano.  Pretty but not a permanent solution.

Well, this morning I needed to take a photo of 
a mulberry spice candle.  This painting caught my 
eye as the PERFECT backdrop for the candle.

This is what the entire painting looks like.

Beautiful, isn't it?

Well, here is the dilemma and where I need your help.
I am going to choose another painting from Carole.
I will purchase it at some point down the road.....

Which one of these do you think best 
compliments my current painting?

Or perhaps I should ask her to do a custom
piece for me?
It is fun to think about.
What do you think?

All I know for sure is that I really enjoy
Carole's work!

  1. Well, I like this one because it repeats the white from the vase and also the floral color.

    This one is also very nice - but it's an oil -

  2. I think I would go with flowers from the farmers market. or have her make a coordinating one! that would be so cool to commission a piece of art!

  3. The third one, in my opinion.
    It's beautiful work.

  4. I like the Flowers from the Farmers Market, but they are all beautiful. Fabulous!

  5. I think the Farmers market one.

  6. Hm, I like the Farmer's Market piece as well.

  7. Becky - the colors in your painting are more muted than the ones in the other 3 paintings.
    If you want a painting that compliments yours than I would commission one. I am going to go to her shop and check out her paintings.


  8. I went into her sold items - Do you like this kind of scene? The colors are more like yours.



  9. Looks like a lot of us are going for "flowers from a farmers market'. Me too!

  10. Oh I'd ask her to commission a piece that will definitely be a companion. Perhaps something using that same vase, but with different fruit and flowers, though in the same colors. What fun! You were blessed with a lovely painting.
