The Letter - original oil figure painting











Gone are the days when a letter was the only means of communication across long distances, which is a good thing, but still, someone reading a letter is one of my favorite subjects to paint. I always wonder, was the news good or bad, was there tragedy within its lines, or did news from home just make them lonely? SOLD








This painting is 8 x 8" - a little larger than I usually do - on Gessobord. Thanks for looking!
