JOANNE MIX, Laguna Beach, California artist. Two Young Girls in Hats (Artist's title: "Tell Me Your Wish), 16" x 12" oil on canvas (framed size: 23" x 19") signed lower left in black: Mix. Signature is a little hard to see because it's signed in black in a dark red area of the girl's dress lower left. Frame is a distressed frame with gilt liner. The frame may possibly have a little edge wear that blends on the upper left and lower right corners. The artist had a painting come up at an auction in 2006 with an estimate of $300 to $400. Her paintings were also featured on covers for Orange County Illustrated in August, 1971. The auction that offered Joanne Mix's painting stated she was the daughter of the famous cowboy actor, Tom Mix, of yesteryear. However, when I looked up information on Tom Mix I did not see that he had a daughter named Joanne so perhaps the auction house was in error? I also found that the artist was listed on artprice and that she has done charming collectible plates of children that are offered for sale on the internet. Of course, this is an original oil painting that we are offering for sale! Condition: Looks like possible edge wear upper left and lower right corners of frame that blends since it is a distressed frame.
