Well y'all hold your breath, don't move.....wait..... TA-DA-.......here it is, I found it at a Thrift Store and just fell in love, it is a watercolor called On The Seashore by Robert Gammell Hutchinson.
I can't tell if it is a print or an original, but I'm hoping it's an original...well come on now, I can dream can't I?....It sure looks like it is on watercolor paper......lol... I don't really think I would be lucky enough to find an original...can you tell I watch tooo much Antique Roadshow.....oh, be still my beating heart, his work is quite expensive. And the best part is it only cost...are you ready for this....$5.00....good deal even if it is just a copy....did I mention I really really like it....I don't want to tear into the frame since it is stapled with 2 dozen staples, and I'm afraid of damaging it......YOU CAN CLICK PICTURES TO GET BETTER LOOK....Hutchinson was born in Scotland in 1855 and died in 1936. I did do research of him on the web and found a little info, and a lot of art work, he worked in oils and watercolor and his work is very expensive. I did find an article about several of his paintings that had been found in England after being stolen. Most of the children in his work are dressed like these little ones.(I haven't figured out how to add links to articles I find on the web or I'd add the story here.)
It is such a sweet soft picture that I just had to have it, the blond and brunette little girls didn't hurt the picture any.
The little insert helped sale me on it....It made it look like more than just a cheat little $5.00 picture.
I thought it would look perfect with the little church sign, the colors match so good, I also used the pitcher and tray on top of the chest of drawers...I added my sweet little rooster scarf that I received from Bea from Bea's Bladder.
