Spring Vegetable Scene

Mattie Lou O'Kelley, a "memory painter" from Jackson County, completed her oil painting Spring Vegetable Scene in 1968. In 1962, at the age of fifty-four, O'Kelley began painting scenes from memories of her early life; like other memory painters, her subject matter was often rural in nature.
