Hand Painted Photo Fun

Collection of Barbara Levine / PROJECT B With a nod to summer fun is this 1950s hand painted photograph of La Jolla beach in California.

Hand coloring was a time consuming process resulting in unique hand-made images. Can you imagine this photograph big and hanging on your wall? We would love to know what you think!
