Vows
Vows

SOLD $580

"Vows" is a 20 x 16 oil painting. It represents the pledging of marital vows...for
better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part.
The oil painting is based on a scene observed in Bergen, Norway.

Betty's paintings reflect memories of special places and experiences from her
retirement years. Her greatest joy is recreating these landscapes, seascapes
and florals with oil in a representational impressionist style.
