Children Playing in the Snow

Children Playing in the Snow This is a late Mid century painting of children Playing in the Snow, signed Simon. It’s a rather large painting (30″ x 42″, and I think it was probably created in the late 60’s, early 70’s. I think it captures the memory and the charm of time spent with brothers and sisters, and neighborhood friends, sledding, building snowmen, having snowball fights, and just having fun playing in the snow in winter. Wonderful Christmas memory, too. Children Playing in the Snow, 30″ x 42″ Acrylic on Canvas painting, signed Simon $550.00

A Winter Present

When Winter winds blow cold and chill And Winter nights seem calm and still There’s still a lot of work to do To keep the homestead warm The fire must stay alit and hot Like cocoa warming in the pot To keep our loved ones inside safe Around the fires glow Underneath the Winter sky With lakes below and mountains high The trees of Winter proudly stand Like guardians in the snow The creeks are cold. The ground is too The trees are bare, except a few. But, still and all, I like the scenes That Winter brings each year. Of … Continued

Is autumn this fall?

Hot September   It’s September as I’m writing this. Hot September. 110 degrees hot, in the shade, September, where I live in Southwest Riverside county, in Southern California. But it’s a dry heat, as if that makes it any less hot. However, if you’ve traveled to Florida, or Hawaii, in the summer, when it’s both hot and humid at the same time, and your shirt is drenching with sweat the moment that you step out of an air-conditioned car, or building, you know that there is a difference between dry heat, and tropical heat. Dry heat just feels like the … Continued

The Georgian style stone homes were named for King George, and were prevalent in the middle colonies in the 18th century, or the 1700s’. Which Jack Whitaker is it? There are the only two notable artists named Jack Whitaker that I could find in my research good enough to paint this painting of a Stone House in Winter. One is popular in … Continued

Mid Century Paris Street Scene Painting

Mid Century Paris Street Scene painting   I think the color and the detail is best in this shot from a slight angle, as the flash didn’t wash out the color.    Mid century French pen and ink and watercolor painting of a Paris Street Scene, featuring Montmartre, Paris and the Sacre Coeur . Signed by the artist. Very well done.    A few years back I owned a painting by the French artist Charles Cobelle. I would say that this artist may well have been a contemporary of Cobelle, or Marcel Dufy, as the use of the open line, … Continued

Mid Century Modern Seascape Painting by Parker

  This is a 24″ x 30″ oil on canvas mid-century modern seascape painting, signed Parker. I think this painting was done in the 60’s, considering the way the palette knife was used to create the jagged texture of the rocky shoreline, in contrast to the more subdued, more minimal treatment of the ocean, seabirds, sky, and rolling and churning waves.
