'''Ben's painting''' was first seen in Barracks's house's house. The portrait depicted a blond woman wearing a white dress seated outside in a wicker chair.  A pot with flowers was nearby, specifically anthuriums (as seen at the Orchid station), and the woman was holding a small mammal like a animals. There was no mention of the painting in the episode; it was only seen in the background as Locke and Ben passed by it. {{crossref}}

The same painting was seen in the Linus' home during an on-the Island flashback. The young Ben passed by it as he returned home at night, just before discovering his Roger Linus passed out on the couch. {{crossref}}

The painting was seen again when Ben and Locke were watching Ben's tape. The painting here was different, however. In the older version of the painting, the woman's hair was forward across her shoulder, but in the new version, her hair was behind her shoulder.  The painting was also hung further to the right on the wall. {{crossref}}

During the attack on the Barracks, Hurley and Locke were standing next to the painting. It seemed to be hanging on its original position on the wall again. The painting itself however was still consistent with the second appearance. {{crossref}}

The painting was still hanging, undamaged, following the mercenary team attack. {{crossref}}
