It was late by the time he got home.  Leaning the bike against the tree he could smell the apple pie fresh out of the oven. His feet couldn't run fast enough as he entered the house to those familiar sing-song words "Close.. the.. scre-een"  Here we have a 6x6" original oil, painted on Birch panel that is mounted to a varnished wooden box so no framing is needed: YES!  I'm re-posting this for the red bike did not come through, so new post and name. (Sold)

I love the contrast in this one, great work on the screen door.
Now I'm hungry.

Excellent work, Gerald.
I love the door, and how the bike grows out of the tree.

Gerald - this is amazing! It reminded me immediatly of my favorite movie of all time - "To Kill A Mockingbird" - it has such a wonderful nostalgic feel -

Gerald Schwartz said...

Hello Cara & thank you.
I do love the old B&W movies, there is a feeling in them that color just cant get.
