An Orange Crush

by Ann Rigney
(Groveland, Florida)

I have a painting of (An Orange Crush) signed by Norman Rockwell. It was painted on a piece of paper 11 inches wide & 14 inches long. There is a first coat of paint 10 1/2 inches wide & 13 1/2 inches long. The second coat of paint is 9 inches wide & 10 5/16 inches long. The width of the painting is 8 7/8 width & 10 3/8 inches long.


The painting is of a little balding old man with a little grey mustache, with a grey streak of hair with a red tint on the ends from the right side of his head to the left hanging up over his head, not smooth down. He is wearing eye glasses with a dark string attached to the rim, as they just set on his nose. Also in his right hand he is holding a straw hat with a dark band around it.

He is standing behind a young red headed girl with a pale blue dress and white lace collar and trim on the sleeve of her dress, she has a hat hanging on her back tied with a blue ribbon in a bow around her neck.

There is a young man (or beau) as they were called in a suit looks green to me with a red tie with few black stripes in the tie the shirt is white. He has dark brown hair parted down the middle.

The young couple appears to be sitting down at a counter sipping orange crush each has a straw and smiling at each other, with one empty glass with just a tiny bit of orange crush left in the glass sitting on the counter. The girl seems to have like something around her right wrist a bracelet but not real big, and she has her right hand on his wrist as he is holding the orange crush in both his hands while they drink.

The little man behind the young couple with his left hand & index finger beckons someone to come to him. His suit is a like a pale green with either a white shirt are napkin around his neck.

And it is signed under the left hand of the young man, in red Norman Rockwell. In the right hand corner the word An then under "Orange Crush."
