The original watercolor painting (bottom image) was commissioned by a gentleman from Florida. Initially he wished to purchase my original painting of two little girls at a country mailbox called GRANDMA'S LETTER (also shown in this gallery); however, the painting had been sold. When he told me about his granddaughter who grew up fascinated by their mailbox, I offered to paint her at their own mailbox. He sent me some photos of her in ponytails holding a favorite stuffed animal at about age 10 and some photos of their mailbox. I painted her quite a bit younger, changed the perspective of the mailbox from top-side view to front-side-bottom view, and created the dramatic back-lighting of this scene entirely from my imagination.

The setting in this watercolor painting is based on the photos of the beautifully landscaped Florida street lined with wonderful Victorian mailboxes that I used as reference for my painting; however, I wanted to keep the focus on little Brittany with her stuffed animal and on the classic Victorian mailbox containing the letter for Nanna with a red heart. In my opinion, painting a detailed landscape would detract from the main subject. Keeping the background impressionistic with the organic feeling of foliage and trees keeps the eyes focussed on the subject and background in peripheral vision. I'm afraid that, with emerging new technology, this mailbox painting may be a bit nostalgic and soon these familiar structures that house our mail will no longer exist. They purchased the painting as a gift for their granddaughter who is graduating from university this year.
