(ONE OF TWO BY THE SAME ARTIST, THE OTHER WORK SIMILAR----SEE ITEM # JB03743). Oil on board painting of a Native American woman balancing a traditional pot on her head, signed at upper left by artist Lee Willke. The work measures 18" by 14" and 22" by 18" in simple oak frame. The expression on the woman's face is precious; that by itself propels this into the "whimsical" category. The pottery is beautifully observed and note the subtle yet complex background work. To date I have not found information online regarding an artist of this name. Found in Maine.
