Brant’s Kitchen by Jimmy Craig Womble 18×24 Oil – Sold
Paintings of Interiors are a favorite of mine. I enjoy seeing what the artist captures (and what they may leave out) – everyone is a little different, but most I’ve seen are pretty incredible. If you think about it, it’s not an easy subject. It’s something that we’re all familiar with, we know how it should look – yet these paintings don’t just show an interior space, they tell a story. A story about the people who live there, what they’re up to. In this case I would guess that these people like to cook, although the kitchen isn’t large it appears to be well equipped and ready to create a wonderful meal. There is a lot to paint and I have to say that Jimmy did it so well. Love it! Be sure to check out more paintings on Jimmy’s website…

Read a bit about Jimmy, from his website:
I am an oil painter living on the coast of North Carolina. I paint that which has usually been overlooked by many as old, run down, or without value. Abandoned houses, old barns, rusty vehicles, and the detritus of a once thriving farming and fishing region find their way into many of my works. They tell a story of the south that I could never put into words. The rust and decay is a physical reminder of the passage of time, and speaks of those who have struggled to make a life in this part of the country.
But I have my own selfish reasons as well for painting what I do. I find a certain beauty in the peeling paint and rust of forgotten things. The light falling over these old objects and places has an intensity and sparkle that is endlessly fascinating to me. There will always be new things, but how long will I continue to be able to paint those reminders of what used to be? Both man and nature conspire against them, so I hoard their images in pads and on canvas.
