BY THE COUNTRY STORE –
In 1939, Les Kouba was working his way around America painting Coca-Cola signs. Although it was always his final goal to become a wildlife painter, “I had to pay my dues and obtain basic training wherever I could”.
“The Country Store was a headquarters for the whole community; often including a post-office, a bus depot and a center of activity for the whole community”. “Just as we now have Classic Coca-Cola, this is a painting in remembrance of vintage Classic America”.
“We share a lament for what we as a people have lost from these earlier times, but as long as the wild geese fly overhead, we can share their faith and hope for the future” – Les C. Kouba
In mint condition; never framed. The size of the image is 16″ X 21 1/4″ plus full margins. Published by Les in 1991 in an edition of 5000.
Included with the shipment of this print will be the story about it as written by Les Kouba. I am showing this in a separate picture. I think anyone owning this print will enjoy the story very much and want to frame it to go with the print. It is pictured larger than actual, in proportion to the print, to show the details.
