Fine Pennsylvania impressionist oil on board snowscape by H. Don Donnell. The image depicts a winding country road along bordered by a fence to one side and a couple of trees on the other. Pockets of brush dot the landscape. Auburn leaves cling to the trees, creating a nice counterpoint of color to the soft greys and blues in the snow-covered ground and wintery sky. A pair of small buildings appear in the near background before the scene rises to the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. The perspective is particularly appealing. The painting is signed twice at lower right, one under the impasto and again in the same hand over the impasto. The first signature seems to include a date, which appears to be 1920. The back of the board is marked in pencil "Butcher Creek Road Near Butler Pa/$75/By H. Don Donnell".
Origin: America, ca. 1920. Condition: excellent. Size: board, 16" x 12"; overall, 21-1/2" x 17-1/4".
