Mrs. Peacock in the Dining Room with the Rope
Growing up, my family was always big on playing board games together in the evenings. Clue was one of our favorites. While working on this painting and observing the board so closely after all these years, I realized that I had forgotten how simplisticly rendered the illustrations of the rooms are. They have a charm all their own. And how nice to handle actual wooden playing pieces rather than plastic! Very appealing to the visual and tactile sensibilities and brings back a lot of fond memories.
