Wonderfully painted, this Antique Painted Painter's Palette Winter Scene shows the exterior of cottages in winter. In the foreground, a man and woman walk through the snow, he's carrying a long pole. Note the charming picket fence, the beautiful snow covered trees and wonderful grey skies.
Painted in oils by a folk artist, American is my best guess, this is one of the best of its kind I've found in quite a while. The colors are the muted blue, grey, cream, brown, and black, livened up by the mustard golden yellow skirt of the woman, and the man and woman's brighter blue shirt and wrap. Love this one! Display on your mantel on a stand, or hang this on the wall with your collection of 19th century country paintings.
