Oil on canvas painting of water lilies, 20" by 16" (28 1/2" by 24 1/2" framed), signed at lower and signed again on the reverse, titled there "Pink Lilies & Reflections"/July 88, by the late Canadian impressionist artist RON SIMPKINS (1942-2008). This is a lushly painted work in the tradition of Monet, who the artist greatly admired, according to a tribute website posted on the net by a loving daughter. Simpkins was the son of Canadian artist Henry J. Simpkins, and continued his impressionist tradition. The younger artist painted landscapes primarily, of eastern Canada and the American northeast. Apparently, according to the daughter, his lily pad scenes were among his best sellers, and most in demand by the dealer network he supplied. See the interesting site set up by the daughter, including videos. Simpkins' works are included in many Canadian corporate collections, and he exhibited widely in the United States and Canada. This painting is in excellent condition, though the frame liner is stained/soiled. In the 1990's, a lily pad work sold for over $3,000 at auction.
