I live in a city where the old houses get torn down and replaced with apartments. I notice that as the apartments do not have much privacy they tend to have their blinds closed. My house is on the ground where interaction with neighbors in my garden happens every day. I know we cant all live in a cute little house but where possible they are sssssoooo much better than apartment living.
The painting is small enough to post on its inside stretcher frame in Europe and UK. Outside of Europe I would take it off its frame and roll it up to post.
