  6. I'm enjoying this series. I'm a big fan of American Primitive painting. I have a couple paintings I bought at auction in upstate NY in the style. They were painted in the late 1700's or early 1800's by an itinerant artist who travelled from farm to farm painting portraits, landscapes, and animals for a few pennies each.

  9. A horsedrawn carriage, a driver, city life - those were once considered luxuries, weren't they. This mural reminds me of all the conveniences (and warmth) I enjoy in 2006. Thanks, Kate.

  10. Another beautiful mural. It wouldn't take much to turn this into the Christmas scene.

    Kris has a good idea. It would be wonderful to see them in a slide show.
