Watercolor painting of a schooner or other coastal sailing ship, 11 1/2" by 17 3/4" (19 1/4" by 25 1/4" as framed), signed at lower left by listed California artist LOYAL MAYER (1919-2011). The watercolor is a fine decorative example of maritime art in excellent condition. Frame is wood and shows just a little bit of wear which could be easily sanded and restained. The artist, a recent resident of central California (Atascadero), was born in Kansas City and trained at the Kansas City Art Institute. He served in the military on and off for many years, serving as an illustrator and art director, often creating drawings for technical materials. The assignments included stints in Europe. As a freelance artist, Mayer created scenes of boats, wharves, old barns and, interestingly, old locomotives. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS INCLUDING MARITIME PAINTINGS NOW IN MY SHOP.
