Mike, Pat, and Coops, thanks for your comments. I'm glad you liked my painting.

Just for fun, I recommend you GOOGLE, "Clothespin Philadelphia". You'll get some nice photos of the real clothespin. It is a 45 foot high (approx 9 meters) sculpture by Claes Oldenburg.

Jim Walsh,
There must be a mighty large woman that hangs her mighty large
clothes out in the Philly sunshine you betsha! Can't imagine what
size her swinging in the breeze bloomers are! :eek: ;) :D

Seriously, this is a really well presented piece, lovely artwork and
creative framing. Had no idea that the lowly clothespin was a
featured sculpture in William Penn's favorite haunt. Thanks for the
educational mention and well painted! :)

It's quite different from Your usual ones, but very interesting and tasty I find!

I googled Jim. Very cool. There seems to be a general sympathy for this clip of clothes. Your painting was very nice.
