Diane Akey, Clara's Summer circa 1935 A Painting Postcard
10" x 10", Mixed Media on Cradle Board, Sold
The inspiration for my Clara Series was from a photo taken in 1936. In the summer of 1936, 17 year old, Clara had a job at a resort in Bermuda. She met and fell in love with her future husband that summer. My Painting Postcards were inspired by my own paintings from my Clara series. These are small mixed media paintings made up of a collage of acrylic skins. They all about communicating the old fashion way with a letter or a postcard. There is a blank postcard on the back of the painting for you to write your message to someone special!
