Beautifully worked oil on board still life painting of flowers tumbling out of a shallow rich blue tabletop dish, 15" by 22 1/2" (20 1/2" by 28" in a period old bright gold frame), signed at lower left by artist JOSEPHINE M. SMITH. The painting probably dates to about 1935. Found in California. There are two Josephine Smiths listed as California artists, one a china painter, but the middle initial does not match, so I am unable to firmly associate this with any particular artist. Josephine however was talented and she created some lasting beauty in this painting. Frame and painting are in very good display condition; slightest losses on frame edge at lower right.
