Fine original watercolor paining by the noted "California Style" watercolorist Lois Cohen Green. Excellent condition, well framed and ready to display. The sight area measures 13 ½ by 19 ½ inches. The frame size is 20 by 26 inches approximately. Signed in the lower center. Be sure to see our other offerings for the companion painting that goes with this work. We will be happy to entertain an offer for the pair. This work features lots of bold colors with very nice lines. An excellent example of the quality seascape/nautical work produced by Green. Lois Cohen Green belonged to the California Watercolor Society and is well known for her "California Style" watercolors. Sure to rise substantially in value over the next few years.
