12″ x 14 1/2″ (includes a thin white border) watercolor on paper, unsigned. This is a charming folk art (naive) depiction of a square dance in a barn. It was painted to be used on a jigsaw puzzle and includes many characters and faces. It’s lots of fun to study. DAC provided her artwork for puzzles and greeting cards in addition to wall decor. The artist is guaranteed. Buyer pays for shipping.
