Fine original oil on artist's canvas board measuring 16 x 20 inches. Signed in the lower left corner. Nice and bright with a great feel. Very good condition with a small scratch in the creek area (hard to see), offered unframed. Most likely a Brown County scene although I do not know the specific name of this creek area. Lots of great color. Baum's works are growing in popularity among Hoosier collectors as interest in his work continues to grow. Baum is a listed artist and is found in the Art and Artists of the Hoosier Salon 1925-1990 book.
