Here is another just great painting.   There is so much here to learn from that I could type until my fingers dropped off.  Detail: door, chair, table, fireplace, lantern, pitcher, plates, copper mug, copper pan, colander, basket, brass skimmer, coat, pipe, neckware, boots, buckskin breeches, table, child, candlestick, women’s clothes,  cat, spit, spit turner,  brass buckle belt, walking stick, meat.
