Mattie Lou O’Kelley used bright, vivid colors to create landscape paintings of her early life in rural Georgia. In this resplendent springtime scene, she includes a wealth of detail to depict memories of a local yard sale. The small girl sitting in the doorway likely represents the artist herself as a child.
