I asked my lovely cousins and daughter to model for me several years ago, and so I've been planning this painting since then. They were wearing authentic "pioneer" clothing that had been
handed down from some of our ancestors, and I felt like I was witnessing a little glimpse of history: perhaps my ancestors had enjoyed a late summer luncheon just like this. I instructed my
willing models to "ignore me and just have fun"; in this way we recreated an authentic moment of innocence that could have happened long ago, and which DID happen again that day.
