Please take note: This is an important work by this talented artist whose works are rarely found on the open market. Geneva and her sister Naomi Jackson both painted in the style of their uncle A.Y. Jackson, something that is abundantly noticable in this winter setting scene. The painting is appropriately displayed in a vintage frame that is original to this work.
