A PAIR of contemporary oil on canvas works, one on canvas, 20" by 16" (26 1/2" by 22 1/2" framed), the larger piece on canvas board, 24" by 18" (30 1/2" by 24 1/2" framed), one signed with what appears as "Sichan" or similar. The frames are of identical silvery finish. Frames and paintings are in excellent condition. The expansive view out over a coast, and relaxed patios with their furniture, evoke pleasant thoughts and perhaps memories of vacations past. The archway through which we look out upon the coast has a Latin feeling to it; tiny red roofs in the distance suggest California, the Mediterranean, or perhaps even Costa Rica or Mexico. There is a lot of detail---fruits in the bowl, furniture, flowers, blue pitcher and tableware. On the larger piece, the artist has handled well the transition of the light from the shaded interior to the brilliantly sunny distant coast.
