Autumn Train by Charley Harper
I love me some Charley Harper… His mosaic mural is one of my favorite Cincinnati finds. As much as I love his whimsical critters, I’m a city girl and, when I found out that his original Ford Times paintings have been rediscovered, I was most curious about seeing the range of subjects that he might have tackled beyond the birds, fish, and animals for which he is best known.
