"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

It Didn't Turn Out the Way It Started

I recently finished a painting for my sister, Wanda.  It is from a photo that she took in California of a row of mailboxes.  I tried two times to paint it as I saw it, but it was boring each time, so I changed the color scheme.  I was inspired by paintings I saw posted on Virtual Painter by Carolee Clark. I wasn't sure what Wanda would think, but she said she loved it, and I'm glad.


  1. Hai Jeneen:) I think it became a wonderful painting. We don't know such a thing over here in the Netherlands. Every house has the mailbox on it. It looks so funny this way and I think the mailman is happy with it. Nice work with very happy colors!

  2. I had to smile when I saw your comment--I guess the row of mailboxes would seem odd to you!
