Signed Folk Art Painting of Pansies - Watercolor & Graphite - Naive - Primitive

Just a grand piece of antique Folk Art. This watercolor painting of pansies with their bright, happy faces has been proudly signed "Drawn and painted by Willie Pope. age 12 years." The inscription reminds me of those on antique 19th C samplers, innocent and a bit assertive, with a confident and optimistic spirit. And I think the use of the diminutive of 'William' adds a tender, sentimental note. Huzzah, Willie.

Condition is original, lovely old frame and all... right down to the erasures on the charming inscription. A bit of expected overall toning and a couple of water stains on the bottom edge that look to have happened before Willie signed his piece. The frame is in very good condition with a few very minor losses to the gesso decoration. Measures 12 3/8" x 15 3/8" overall, with a sight size of 8 1/2" x 11 1/2".

Open your heart and find a spot of wall that needs a joyful shot of color and cheer, you'll be glad you did. Let Willie's winsome little painting bring a smile to your face every day.
