A watercolor with white gouache of a barn and another structure on an overcast, gray, snowy day, an old buckboard wagon at right center, the work signed below the mat GENE R DREW. I do not see a listing for the artist, who likely painted this around the year 1970 judging from the framing and non-glare type glass (which will be discarded before shipping). The piece, on Crescent art board, measures 18 3/4" by 25" inside the mat, and 25" by 31" in worn dark oak framing. The scene is poetic and peaceful, very little moving on a snowy, quiet day of solitude. There is some indication of the geographical location of this scene: written in ink on the backing paper is "Colorado near Winter Park west of Denver". Condition is excellent. I opened this up in order to see the signature. I would recommend a new mat which would enable the signature to be visible. There are framing measurement notations in pencil at the very edge of the drawing.
