Children Playing in the Snow This is a late Mid century painting of children Playing in the Snow, signed Simon. It’s a rather large painting (30″ x 42″, and I think it was probably created in the late 60’s, early 70’s.

Wonderful Christmas memory, too. Children Playing in the Snow, 30″ x 42″ Acrylic on Canvas painting, signed Simon $550.00
