FOUND is a copy of Walter Hunt’s magnificent painting which became very popular for prints in the 40’s - 60’s. When Frank was a little boy such a print hung in his bedroom. Rather than reading bedtime stories to him and his little sister, his mother would make up stories about the collie and the lamb. Both he and my sister-in-law love this painting and the memories it evokes.
In the fall my version of FOUND was shown in the Punta Gorda Visual Art Center’s Festival of Art featuring the art of England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales with month long events celebrating the Victorian Era. This is an oil painting on paper with pastel accents - something I hadn't tried before
but will again.
