I am very curious about this painting as well. I am liquidating an estate and the same print or painting appeared.

I purchased this print years ago and it has faded and I would like to replace this print. I have searched and searched and cannot find it anywhere. Any ideas wrote at 2012-07-08 03:42:40
This is a very special painting. Keep it and pass it along to your children's children. That's what we are doing. wrote at 2012-07-08 03:47:39
It is by Fred De Jongh, and called Once Upon a time. It is available from web poster sellers. I bought one and had it nicely framed. it is a keeper, so pass it down to your grandkids. wrote at 2015-09-26 03:57:59
I found one that had been sold at auction:

Definitely hard to come by.
