Home is in the Art 14


I bought this little oil painting at the Pickled Hutch on sale for $16. I love it. The back reads, "To Else, happy birthday. September 26. North East Harbor. Marie Ealand." The year isn't listed, unfortunately, but I think it's fairly old. You don't hear the name Else very often nowadays, and the handwriting looks like it's from an older generation, if you know what I mean. The scene reminds me of of our trip to Ireland. Below is a picture I took in Bray, Ireland on a particularly sunny day (not many sunny days to speak of during our trip to Ireland).
