The Mail Boxes
During my early Art shows, a Country theme was very popular and was asked if I had this or that. One of the requests was a painting of some mailboxes, so I drove around the country road until I found some that I thought would make a good painting.
After making prints or the original painting, it became quite popular during that time. It lead me to paint other country items, like a coal bucket, lantern, outhouses and even an old cane chair. It was amazing to see how one thing leads to another.
