New Paintings...From Vintage Family Photo's

After recently spending countless hours going through
my mothers cache of old photograph's, I've been inspired

to paint small vignette's of life in the 1950's and 1960's.

Here are a few 5" x 7" Acrylic Paintings on Canvas

of life in the "simpler times".

Christmas Morning 1963
My brother, in his cowboy hat holding a
toy gun. Me, in my cowgirl hat holding an
iron. :) This just cracks me up!

Coat Tails and Cocktails
My father and his brother sharing a highball.

My grandmother and her two sisters
bonding in the kitchen.

Each of these paintings are available in my shop ~
Magic Markings Art. With more to come just in time
for the holidays.
I hope you enjoyed this little vintage voyage into
my families photo album!
