This is a Pen and Ink and watercolor Original , It measures 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" I bought this in a gallery at Seaside Oregon in 2004, This artist created lots of colorful characters in various settings. I just bought these two small ones. I liked the raccoons and in the other I liked the background tress and waterfall. (will be uploading the other picture shortly)
This is a Howard Kearns Original water color, He passed on in 1940? edit. At the time I found this these were selling for $350 . I found it in a dumpster. It was in a frame covered with Plexiglas and the plastic covering was so scratched and worthless looking they evidently just threw the whole picture away frame and all. I picked it out and went home and took it out of the frame to see what it was. The painting itself appears to be unharmed.
This is two original seascapes from two separate artists. One appears to be William, the other Winslow , . (not Homer)
This Is a Marcelle Boone Original Watercolor, (I will edit this, just starting the catalog ) I believe this artist was an art teacher at at a U.S. University. Iwill get that info out. I found this in Boise Idaho in 2017
