A beautifully rendered scene of sailboats and their reflections in the last (or possibly first) light, masterfully capturing the emotional serenity and quietude of a moment. In a very lightweight wood frame, this original, signed watercolor on paper measures 10" x 14" sight and 17" x 21" framed, in excellent condition, no glass. A wonderfully peaceful, reflective work.
The artist Pappas (or possibly M. Pappas or J. Pappas) has not been identified. The work matches the medium and relative size and style of John L. Pappas' work, in watercolor on paper, from the mid-20th century. However we cannot find a closely matching signature, and without authentication would not make this attribution.
