A small, beautifully crafted oil on canvasboard landscape titled on reverse "Abandoned Farm Santa Clara River", dated June 1999, signed at lower right and again on the reverse, and with artist's business card affixed as well. The painting measures 8" by 10" and 11 1/2" by 13 1/2" in wood frame with liner. Condition is excellent. The artist was born in Pennsylvania and has been in Southern California for most of his life, with much of his subject matter taken from the Oxnard and Ventura area. He showed early interest in art, and in 1969 he signed up for the Famous Artists School correspondence classes. In retirement Rhoads expanded his artistic efforts. Online information suggests a birth date of about 1934. See images of other examples of his work online.
