An impressionist work, possibly mixed media on paper or board, the scene a birds-eye view of a house on steep hillside surrounded by pink-blooming trees, a view to a plain beyond. The painting is signed at lower left by the noted Utah artist KIRK RANDLE (1952-). Randle, a Utah native, received a Presidential Scholarship in 1971, which he used to further his studies at The University of Utah. He maintains a studio at his home in Bountiful, Utah. The artist received the People's Choice Award for three consecutive years in the Leconte Stewart Plein Air Art Competition, and in both 2007 and 2009 was invited to paint in Edward Hopper's private Cape Cod studio. He was featured in American Art Collector in the January 2010 issue. Randle commonly paints scenes of the West, especially the Southwest. This work has a Thomas Kinkade or Marty Bell feeling to it. Condition is excellent. The work could be gouache or oil or a mix, with a glossy fixative spray possibly applied over it.
