Mattie Lou O’Kelley (American, 1908–1997)
My Parents’ Farm, 1980
Memory painter Mattie Lou O’Kelley based all of her artwork on her youth in rural Georgia. In My Parents’ Farm, she transforms her childhood home into a patchwork quilt of farms, forests, and rivers. The painting, reproduced for this 500-piece puzzle, demonstrates the bright colors and simple, pointillistic technique that make O’Kelley a beloved folk artist.
