  Driving through the countryside, I am always getting distracted when I see these old farm roads. It usually makes me wonder where it goes or what is at the end.

1908 Candlestick Telephone - still life oil painting

Copyright © 2011 Linda Apple
"The Old Candlestick" - sold
  9"x 12"
oil on canvas 

Sometimes I miss the old rotary phones. This one is even before my days! :) 
Candlestick Phone - 1908 In the early days of the telephone, prior to the development of the rotary dial, telephone calls were operator-assisted. To place a call, you were required to pick up the telephone receiver and wait for the telephone operator to answer with "Number please?" You would then ask to be connected to the number you wished to call, and the operator would make the connection manually, by means of a switchboard. 
Have a great day - and maybe CALL an old friend!

 Get mellow, remember the good old days with this classic. If you are one of the baby boomers then you will really relate to this one. I mean, WHO didn't own a VW at one time or other??
I know that I had one! Definitely a fun little car.

"Cat Visions" 
animal art

I have always believed that cats can often see what we cannot....
If you look closely you may see what the cat can see on Hallows eve. 

This is one of Halloween pieces and it has recently become the cover of a magazine!! The original oil painting has sold but sense Halloween is approaching, I thought I would re-post it and let you know that I have large and small high quality prints available if you are interested. It is $15.oo for a small and $21.oo for a large. I think this is definitely one of my favorite Halloween pieces that I have done.........

When you are in the middle of a downtown area, looking up,
you get a very different kind of view. 
I really liked seeing the old buildings and the new tall glass structures together.
