  • Sale
  • Regular price $0.01

This amazing painting, a WPA era oil on board, has moody and rich color and is in it's original wood frame. Painted in the late 1930's, the painting was gifted to someone in 1943, as we see by the inscription on the back side. Signed by the artist on the bottom left corner.

We have titled this work Houseboat. The little green houseboat looks as if it has docked in a quite waterway. Maybe the gift giver was wishing lots of love and luck to the recipient in their new journey or home.
The photography has a yellow hue. The actual color of the frame is medium brown. The painting colors are deep, rich and dark.

The painting has minor wear, as does the wood frame. The frame has scratches and surface wear. We have not cleaned the painting or the frame and is in as found condition.
