Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

EDM art 5: A hot woodburning stove.

Few things are as comforting and warming as an old woodburning stove, or coalstove as we used to call it. during the day it gets stacked with wood and at night with coals which can simmer all night long with closed vent; Coming down to a kitchen, smelling the heat from the coals and just moving the kettle over for an old fashioned coffee,…it is a joy few people know about today and many might remember it form childhood. In winter this is our chef in the kitchen.. For heat, for comfort, for a homely ambiance, for cooking , for keeping the kettle ready, and warming the hands. Of course this thing can push out some mean kilowatts and I have a few scars as evidence. But boy, a tajine or a boeuf bourguignon or a rosemary leg of lamb coming out of that little oven…it gives total a new meaning to the term oven baked. As the thermostat is long gone, I am obliged to step back in time and test the oven temperature  by sticking in my hand in the oven and counting….warm, hot or freakin hot!

    You picked a challenging angle–that is, it would challenge me, Ronelle. But how warm the scene is–a hot kettle on a glowing stove. I just love it. A keeper, for sure.

    • Thank you, Annie. Yes, I am actually trying to work with some different angles…not necessarily very correct perspective wise, more for interest.. 🙂
