"You Got Mail"
Medium and Dimensions: Watercolor, 17 X 21 inches
Price: $497 (inc tax)
Statement: The scene depicts two mailboxes and a picket fence surrounded by red roses. It is reminiscent of an earlier time when the pace was slower. When people wrote letters by hand and people savored reading them . . . even saving them to read again and again. Perhaps even passing them on to future generations. Now that we are being asked to stay in and slow down, it might be time to revive the fine Art of letter writing.
