Paul sent me some great old postcards from the early 1900s of The Red Inn in Provincetown. I thought it would be really fun to recreate these on a large scale for their 100th year anniversary this summer.

I love reading the backs of the postcards. This one is from 1921. It reads "You must see this place. We are spending the night at "Red Inn"- at present we are on the beach wading. So lovely. Delightful trip. Love, Lena."

I used blue painters tape so that I had a nice clean edge to recreate the white border and text that was on the front of the original postcard. I took some images along the way to show my progress and also to show the large scale of this painting.

Wow, Ann! All done with a palette knife? Simply amazing! I must confess that these old timey postcards are my favorites. I think it might just be something I might start looking to collect. I always love the art/images on them. This is a beautiful piece!
