A bawdy smoking redheaded bad girl finds herself proverbially "on the fence" and garnering the attention of a pair of well articulated convincing hayseeds in this large and wonderful original paperback book cover illustration by Sam Cherry. Painted in the 1950s, an oil on illustration board which was created for an as of yet unidentified paperback title exploring rural proclivities in Smalltown USA. Signed lower right and nicely framed in a vintage and likely original to the painting wood frame.
