THIS FRAMED PICTURE BY G.C. HOLMES IS 14-3/4" WIDE BY 11-3/4" TALL AND IS IN IT'S ORGINAL FRAME........ON THE BACK SAYS THAT THIS PICTURE AND FRAME WAS PRESENTED TO SOMEONE AS AN AWARD IN SPELLING AND DATED 5/30/1933 BY THE GIFT GIVER.........THIS IS 75 YEARS OLD AND IN GREAT SHAPE.......THE ORIGINAL BACKGROUND STORY BY G.C. HOLMES IS ALSO ATTACHED TO THE BACK........IT READS:........... MR. HOLMES IS A MODERN PAINTER. ONE WARM SUMMER DAY THE MOTHER OF THIS FINE, HEALTHY BABY TOOK OFF HIS SHOES AND STOCKINGS AND ALL OTHER CLOTHES EXCEPT A SLIP AND PUT HIM DOWN ON THE COOL, BARE FLOOR IN THE KITCHEN TO PLAY WITH THE KITTEN WHILE SHE WAS BUSY WITH HER HOUSEHOLD DUTIES. THE BABY WAS NOT OLD ENOUGH TO WALK, BUT HE COULD CREEP VERY FAST. WHILE HIS MOTHER WAS ABSENT FROM THE KITCHEN, HE MADE HIS WAY ACROSS THE THRESHOLD TO THE CLEAN FLAG-STONES W HIS FRIEND., THE COLLIE, WAS MEDITATING IN THE SUN. THE DOG SAT UP WHEN HE SAW THE BABY COMING, AND THIS PICTURE SHOWS THE MOMENT WHEN THE TWO FRIENDS LOOKED INTO EACH OTHER'S EYES. NEITHER DOG NOR CHILD COULD SAY, "CAN'T YOU TALK?" AND NO MORE CAN THE HALF-GROWN PUSSY-CAT THAT IS TAKING IN THE SITUTION FROM THE DOORWAY. THIS PICTURE IS PAINTED IN LOVE AND SYMPATHY, NOT ONLY WITH THE CHILD, BUT WITH PLAYMATES. THE CAT AND DOG ARE VERY SATISFYING BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT REPRESENTED AS ENDOWED WITH POWERS OF INTELLIGENCE BEYOND THEIR SPECIES. THEY ARE LIKE DOMESTIC ANIMALS THAT WE KNOW................WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY THE PICTURE TELLS.........ON THE FRONT BELOW THE PICTURE IN GOLD LETTERS IS : "CAN'T YOU TALK" AND BELOW THAT IS: BY G.C. HOLMES THIS IS A TRUE TREASURE TO HANG ON YOUR WALL .......THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT MY AUCTION ITEMS.....
