Watercolor on paper of a lake and mountains painting size, sheet measuring 11" x 14 1/2" and 22" x 23 1/2" with frame, signed at lower right with "UECKER" He was a member of the National Watercolor Society. Uecker was born in Los Angeles in 1929 and won a five year scholarship to the Chouinard Art Institute, where he was instructed by the likes of Rex Brandt, Ed Reep, and Pruett Carter. Later in life he became a teacher himself, as well as owner of art supply stores in the Pasadena area. This work likely dates to the 1970's I would guess. The present matting is stained and old and should be replaced.
