|My First Folk Art Painting||About 40 years ago I was shopping in Virginia Holt's Antique Store on East main Street , Stockton, Ca. when I saw this very painting. As I looked at it Virginia came up and explained to me how to tell good art from bad. She explained that a good artist would never paint a painting such as this. She pointed out the totally out of portion animals and the chickens. "No one would ever buy such a painting." She went on to tell me she would be happy with $5.00 for it. I rejoiced as I walked out the door. I had just bought and fell in love with my first folk art painting.
This is on canvas and is 21 1/2" x 15 1/2", framed in its original old frame it is 28" x 22". I had it professionally cleaned about 5 years ago.|
