Nathaniel Hawthorne
Summer in South Africa.
ART: Oil
A paletteknife painting, oil. (on an x-raysheet, can be framed) .

I painted a similar picture a few years ago: Summer , but then I used a brush. This paletteknife painting was inspired by the fact that I sold a card of Summer this morning! It gave me so much joy!
