This is just a great original piece. A unique subject for the well listed Rockport artist. For those not familiar with the artist, I have listed his biography below. This is a wonderful vibrant still life of flowers in a vase. A thick use of paint and pallette knife really give this painting a great look. Oil on canvas measuring 18 x 22 inches. Signed lower right corner. Painting is in excellent condition with no issues at all. Very clean and vibrant. Original frame is a wonderful painted white and gold wood example. Sort of a shabby chic. A good presentation of an excellent original painting. Frame measures 26 1/2 x 30 inches.
