VTG Julie Hopkins Oil Painting Abstract Realism 1960's 3 Men Talking New England
We are offering a wonderful oil painting on canvas by Julie Hopkins. It features three rustic farmer looking men from Maine. They are happy and conversing.
Great colors of blues , bronze, black and cream. Very much the style of the 1960's. The artist mixed Abstract realism into her portrait. Very well done.
Her paintings currently sell for $1,500 in galleries. We are fortunate to have one of her early New England paintings.
