My grandmother, Carrie Vanderbilt Hoover, started painting late in life, after she retired as a registered nurse. She passed away at the age of 94 after spending many years quilting and painting. This is an oil painting on melamine, hanging on the wall at my mother's house. I think it is just gorgeous with the vibrant colors. It was painted sometime in the early 1980s or late 1970s.
