Antique Clothes Dryer by LindaAppleArt

“Clothes Dryer”
oil painting – 6″×8″

Years go by and some things do become, more or less,obsolete.My grandma always used these as her clothes dryer but today its rare to even find these original round wooden objects.
I look at them and think about the person that came up with this amazing little item. They really are unique in their design and were certainly used by the millions!

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!
