The painting of two snails

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.
