A PAIR of highly realistic, detailed watercolor paintings one of pears, one of peaches, the peaches 10" by 14", (18" by 21" as framed), the pears 9 1/2" by 15 1/2", (16 3/4" by 22 1/4" framed), both in blond wood frames, behind Plexiglas, both signed in gold paint by Los Angeles area contemporary artist GRACE SWANSON. An online biography reveals that the artist displayed talent while still a youngster; she went on to degrees in art from Loyola Marymount College in Los Angeles. In 2010 an exhibition of her work was held at a major gallery at Santa Monica's Bergamot Station. Swanson works in watercolor and acrylic. Realistic and hyper-realistic subject matter, harking back to the Dutch Masters she admires and studies, is her specialty and passion. She can spend many, many hours creating one painting. These works are in immaculate condition and are ready for the wall. The Plexi will make for easy and safe shipping.
