A white ranch fence cuts across a green landscape in Murrieta, California. Signed lower right, Menditto. Signed and titled on the verso, A. P. Menditto, ‘Murrieta California 1996’ This original oil painting on board is in great condition with no scratches, holes or restorations. The painting measures 10 inches tall and 16 inches wide. Set in a wood frame that measures 17-1/2 inches tall and 23 inches wide. The frame looks nice but does have some light paint loss which enhances the rustiness of the frame. This painting would look great in a living or dinning room.
