Oil on canvas painting of trees in a tawny dry landscape, 12" by 20" and 1" wide old wood frame, signed at lower left by artist S. J. TUJAGUE. At first I had difficulty reading the signature but some net research showed this to be by an artist apparently at least originally hailing from Louisiana, there being a number of pieces, some still life works, having been auctioned in New Orleans. A famous restaurant in that city goes by this name. From the looks of things the talented artist might well have then moved on to California to paint. This certainly looks like a California landscape and the work was found here. The painting probably dates to the 1920's or 1930's. It could use a cleaning and varnish and a little attention to some minor abrasions, but is essentially sound. There is a little stretcher bar show through at top.
