An extract from Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

Art By Bruce, Oil Painting, landscape, Girl, Walking, Rebecca,
Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

Rebecca’s idea of being a painter like her friend Miss Ross was gradually receding, owing to the apparently insuperable difficulties in securing any instruction.

Her aunt Miranda saw no wisdom in cultivating such a talent, and could not conceive that any money could ever be earned by its exercise.

“Hand painted picures” were held in little esteem in Riverboro, where the cheerful chromo or the dignified steel engraving were respected and valued.

See what Picasso and Claude Monet had to say about art. Rebecca – Girl in a pink gingham dress will soon be on my easel so please do come back in a while.

Do you have a special passage in a book that you would like brought to life in your own painting? Contact me with your passage on bruceA684@Gmail.com and lets see if we can dream up something beautiful.
