Another wonderful Musselman watercolor, a Pennsylvania farmhouse and barn in a Summer landscape, this time under a bright afternoon sun. James Musselman was a Pennsylvania artist and art teacher who was taught and heavily influenced by Dong Kingman. Dong Kingman was one of America's watercolor masters and was at the forefront of The California Style School of Painting. Musselman received his masters degree from Columbia University's Fine Art Center. This wonderful watercolor is done in the wet to wet style, where the paper is kept moist to receive the medium and was part of his 1989 Baum School of Art Exhibit. It's a lovely rendering of an early Pennsylvania farm, rustic and charming with a summer innocence, not a cell tower in sight. The watercolor measures 10 inches by 14 inches and the frame measures 17 inches by 21 inches, and the mat and frame are simple.
Note: The last picture shows another Musselman watercolor farm landscape from the same exhibit. They are wonderful companion pieces, I had them displayed together, and if you'd like both a discount will be given.
