TREES, WHEELBARROW, AND BIRDS
20" x 16", oil on artboard
Purchased by M. Frank at a Boston thrift store
Three trees are balanced precariously in a wheelbarrow, but the artist's straightforward optimism and good cheer assure us that the future is bright. Leaf colors, though unlikely, are intense; bluebirds circle though the trees; and the loaded wheelbarrow sits lightly on the grass. The artist's confident strokes convince us that all is well.
