This painting was done from a black and white photograph. This picture has been in my wife's family since the early twentieth century. It is one of her favorites. I painted it and we both liked the results so much that we used the image for our Christmas card. It has never been for sale and has been hanging in our living room since I painted it. Most everyone likes it and is amazed that a painting can be done from an old B&W photograph. I have entered it into the August Bold Brush Art Competition.
