There was a Rev. Howard Finster folk art painting, titled Howard in 1944. This is a fully enameled folk art painting that was painted in 1988. The smile in this portrait is very attractive and makes me smile the same way.
I am also really attracted to a folk art painting that was painted by the painter Bill Dodge in October 1962. The title of the painting is Van Nuys First Stand. The painting is on board and shows the city center with all the people of the city. They are in the windows and on the street. The city's market, bakery, Van Nuys Hotel, an ice cream parlor, and Wing Lee laundry are all portrayed in vibrant colors. The women in the foreground are against the tram and their signs say "Ban the Monster" and "Keep Rural Van Nuys".
Thomas Chambers is one of America's leading folk artists. I found a piece of it that I just don't like very much. It's a little austere to my taste. The subject is a fishing scene with villagers and boats. I don't think I'll buy this folk art painting because I just don't like it.
I found a folk art painting called Alligator Fisher that was painted in 1940 and that I really like. The blue of the bayou is very soothing and the trees give a very southern feel. There is a swamp house in the painting and I like this one a lot. It reminds me a lot of Louisiana.
My mother started this passion of mine for folk art paintings. She had a John Roeder folk art painting in our growing living room. I used to spend hours just looking at him. The trees were so relaxing to lose me. I asked her to give me this wonderful folk art painting many times, but she says I'll have to wait until after her funeral!
I found a folk art painting during my journey that felt sad every time I looked. The name of the painting is a letter from my mother. The look on the girl's face is so serious and sad. I have no idea where this folk art painting should hang. The painting itself is magnificent; that makes me sad.
There is a whole subset of folk art paintings representing American American culture. I usually don't buy any of these pieces because they don't speak to my experience. I found a piece I bought for a collector friend of mine who loves this kind of art. The folk art painting had a whimsical feel and a woman relaxing in a hammock. He hung it in the hallway and has loved it for a long time.
My brother likes folk art paintings as much as I do. He prefers animals to be objects of paintings he buys. I found him a beautiful leopard folk art painting for him last Christmas and he asked me to keep my eyes open for more. He said he would buy any art I found because he trusts that I know and understand his tastes.
I kept my eyes open for animal-themed folk art paintings for my brother, but I just can't find anything as good as the leopard I caught for him. The large expanse of animal-themed folk art paintings I found recently was a painting of two owls on a branch and I know he wouldn't like it. Since we were kids, owls scare you totally.
