Inspiration, Art and Food

In the 1900s, The East End of Long Island was a place of very simplistic lifestyle. It had strong sustainable communities consisting primarily of farming and fishing supporting its humble population; quite the opposite of the way things are today. It was a destination filled with inspiration which also drew many important artists to the beautiful beaches and scenic landscapes to paint, draw and write. For a period of about fifteen years during the turn of the century, William Merrit Chase created his works during his summers east. Here's his still life titled, STILL LIFE WITH FISH, BRASS KETTLE, LEMON AND ONION. Here's a little summer inspiration for you. The only element missing here is the fire.
