Vintage California still life painting of poppies in vase by listed artist

Oil on linen laid on board, 16 1/4" by 23 1/4", the simple modern frame about 1 1/4" wide, signed at lower right by listed California woman artist M.E. HODGDON, not dated but likely before 1920. The painting recently came out of Maine, where it had possibly resided for decades, perhaps brought east by an early day traveler wanting a souvenir. The artist, MARY E. HODGDON, is said by Hughes in his dictionary of California artists to have been a resident of Los Angeles between 1912 and 1922. Note the old handwritten note affixed to the backing: "(antique)/California Poppies/By M.E. Hodgdon/oil painting on Linen". The painting has some uneven varnish, raises up from the board in places, and has a little easily removed white foreign matter (visible to the right of the flowers in the field) but basically is a solid decorative work that would look right at home in a Mission, Arts and Crafts or California Southwest interior.
