Oil on 8" by 10" canvasboard painting of an autumnal landscape, a fertile apple tree at left ready to yield its riches, golden leaves at right partially obscuring a distant arid mountainside, (12 1/2" by 14 1/2" in deep light oak framing), signed at lower right "MIRIAM K. PARKER" and dated there 1966. My first impression was that this might be a New Mexican scene, and research of the artist name suggests that this hunch might be right. Google shows a Miriam K. Parker 1914-1977 as an Albuquerque resident, former University of New Mexico student that completed her work in 1958 in New York City at Columbia Teachers College, obtaining there her masters degree in Fine Arts and Fine Arts Education. This information suggests that this might be the artist but it is only speculation. What is known for sure is that this is a nicely executed impressionist painting with fine handling of light and color.
