"Kodak Moment" - SOLD

Acrylic   6"x6"   Stretched Canvas  

Oh, if this old camera could talk, the stories it could tell...of birthday parties, weddings, 4th of July picnics, first days of school, Christmas presents being opened...
I found this camera in an antique shop and I wonder whose family it saw through its viewfinder. Where did they live? What did they celebrate? As I painted this, I was picturing my own grandma holding a camera exactly like this one, lining us kids up on the front steps of the farmhouse for a snapshot. How much richer we are for all those pictures and for all those people we were standing next to in them. This one's for you, Grandma.
