The artist Astrid F. Okerslund has painted a wonderful scene! A young woman with a beautiful warm smile is peering cheerfully around a large tree trunk. She is surrounded by green of the forest. The artist has blended in leaves and branches nicely using stokes of various colors of green to give the leaves life. The shadows dance merrily off the girl's hair and face and off the wide tree truck. This is a very beautiful piece of art which has been signed and dated by the artist in the lower right corner. The canvas has been re-stretched onto a new frame helping to preserve it for many years to come. In our opinion the frame that the oil is in does not do the painting justice. The frame is a personal choice so we will leave that up to the new owners of this beautiful piece.
We found reference to Astrid Okerslund when she was younger winning awards for artwork in a 1916 Farm Journal.
