Just in time for the 4th of July comes this wholesome gouache on board painting from artist & illustrator William H. Townley of a scrappy young boy giving a giddy and mischievous, bandaged thumbs up as he carries bottle rocket fireworks over his shoulder. An all-American portrait of unknown print usage of small town Americana, boyhood and youth, filled with nostalgia and charm.
