A decidedly modern watercolor painting of five liquor bottles, painted in mid century colors, 11" by 15" inside the mat, 23" by 30" in interesting, vintage rubbed reddish gray wood framing, signed at lower right by artist "Linahan". I have been unable to link this to a known artist. The black outlining style of the imagery and, especially the colors chosen by the artist suggest a late 1950's or early 1960's date...

A contemporary watercolor painting of a flowering shrub, unsigned, 12" by 18" (20" by 26" in attractive gold frame in good condition), possibly of east coast origin as the framer's sticker is from Boston. This reminds somewhat of mountain laurel, the state flower of Connecticut, but that is pure speculation (mountain laurel is usually more white though there are pink and dark pink varieties). In any event, botanical questions aside, this watercolor is nicely executed and in excellent condition...

A good-sized oil on canvas painting of a forest glen with feathery trees and a small brook, all bathed in a late afternoon sunlight, 34 1/2" by 23" (40" by 28" in likely original frame). The work strangely is not signed by this talented artist. From the materials, handling, and framing, I would suggest a circa 1915 to 1925 date...

A very nicely executed little painting of the California desert, 4 1/4" by 4 3/4", unframed, painted on a portion of an originally larger canvasboard that has been cut into a number of parts so that the artist could presumably make a number of miniatures. There is no signature on the work but it is certainly good enough to have been painted by a listed artist. The canvasboard suggests a pre-1970 date of execution, maybe even 1950's.

A charming miniature (6" by 6" frame included) painting of a spaniel dog, the canine's name "Coco" at upper left, and the signature of a very talented and underrated artist, LUCIENNE DE SAINT-MART (1866-1953) at lower right. The artist was born in Laval, western France and died in 1953 in Laguna Beach, California. The eighty-seven years in between were evidently very rich and interesting times. De Saint-Mart studied art (mostly sculpture) at an early age. She quickly became known for miniatu...
