Mattie Lou O’Kelley painted memories of her childhood. Her nostalgic folk art recalls early 1900s rural Georgia—the abundant fields, the bountiful produce and flowers, the hum of everyday life on a farm. In brilliant color and intricate detail, she recollected her experiences of a lifestyle fast slipping away.
O’Kelley, who started painting in the latter half of her life, has been called “a true American primitive—self-taught, an exquisite recorder of time and place.” The four captivating paintings reproduced in this boxed notecard set radiate with joyful energy.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Spring Vegetable Scene, 1968
My Parents’ Farm, 1980
Morning Glories, 1977
Yard Sale, 1979
