Twisted Bird Painting Over a Basket of Fruit
Adaptation of a Museum Theorem by Nancy Rosier

The Bird Over a Basket of Fruit is from Nancy Rosiers historic collection. 

The theorem arrived today as you stated, and it is absolutely beautiful! I love it! I have hung it up in the spot I reserved and will enjoy this every day!

Your paintings arrived here this afternoon in good order. They are as well executed and charming as I had hoped they might be. The authenticity of each piece will make it quite easy to blend them into our Americana decor where they will be at home with antiques and indistinguishable from period pieces. I hope to acquire a few more of them. Thanks very much for these lovely period reproductions. Rob - Mahwah, NJ - 2013
