An amusing and charming oil on board naive painting showing a house, fronted by a white picket fence, nestled in trees, beside a lake. A large hill or mountain is in the background, while in the foreground a man is drawing water from a well. Dating of the painting is straightforward, as the artist made a point of showing the three propane tanks beside the house. It is unlikely that he would have painted them if the owner (possibly the artist) were not proud of having this new-fangled fuel, which ...click for details

Since the painting is titled, in pencil along the lower margin, "Julia ???", the most likely explanation is that this is Julia, mourning for the loved one who probably wrote the song for her. Rather than sadness, however, the painting conveys a feeling of pensivenes ...click for details
