Many people have emailed me over the past few months to ask about the painting of two snails which can be seen in my dining room as I demonstrate shoe shine technique in Episode Two of PTO.
It was painted in the 1960s by a close friend of my mother’s named Annie Truxell. We had several of Annie’s paintings in the house, and when my mom offered to let me steal a painting from her, the one on my wall is the one I chose.
My mother just emailed me Annie’s new website - she’s getting older (as we all are) but very much alive and working. Click through and take a look at some of her beautiful and mind-bending work.
