Green Acres Meets Grant Wood
My next-door neighbor painted this portrait as a moving away-moving in gift and I just love it. I laugh every time I pass thru the living room (it will be a game room) and see it sitting above the mantle.
What's really great about it as the obvious morphing that has taken place. Anyone who know us and her and her husband can see that she and I look like "me" in that painting and likewise John is a blend of her husband and himself. It's a wonderful painting and a thoughtful gift.
The painting is in sharp focus; the photo... not so much. I'll get a better shot of it soon.
