Picnics. sailboats, harbors, country scenes all filled the canvases of Theresa Prokop when she started to paint. After a career as a nurse for many years, painting became a priority and her popular work became quite well known in the folk art world. I have several fine examples and the first one is called "God Bless America", which is oil on stretched canvas, with painted edges, needing no frame, 18" x 24", and the price is $750. It has a wonderful ABC border, resembling children's slates of earlier times, and is an idyllic view of a joyful African American community at work and at play. A work of art for the whole family and perfect for a child's room.
