Road to Gretna by Barbara Fishman
Fred Swarr has outdone himself this time! “The Carousel Waltz” is a mixed-media painting using sheet music and acrylic paint on canvas. It measures 24″ x 36″. The model is a carved, wooden deer, one of the latest acquisitions of the Mount Gretna Historical Society. It was part of the original Mt. Gretna Park Carousel, created by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company around 1905. This item will be in our live auction which starts at 5 pm on May 26! Let the competition begin!
