Post card painting
7 August 2009 Leave a comment
I wandered across the street this afternoon looking for an antique birthday card in anticipation of my father’s 60th tonight. While paging through a notebook of old postcards, most circa 1915 (or thereabouts), I saw this one.
It’s hand-painted. You can see pencil lines around the building — the chimney in particular — and clouds. There’s no stamp or postmark on the back, just the following written in pencil:
Some of Margarets painting
Happy New Year!
O.C. Givens family.
There’s a pink/peach tinge to the snow on the roof and smoke from the chimney that I think is a nice touch.
