This painting is a combination of all the rural mailboxes I see while driving around the country. I am always taken in by them and have painted them in all sizes, shapes and colors. I really liked this perspective where they are all lined up like they are protecting the country behind them. Hence the title “Mailbox Soliders”. They truely are a part of our past and current culture. It is fun to imagine all the news that passes through them. However, they are probably going to fade into history as they are replaced with technology.
