Lovely painting depicting our beautiful California desert, done with a wonderful blue tinge to it. Nothing like painting an interpretation of the landscape with an artist's eye for fascinating color combinations. Painted by Paul Conner (1881-1968), an artist who I have always felt is underrated in the lexicon of artists from the period. He was a member of the Laguna Art Colony, and had a studio in Long Beach near the ocean, where he painted and taught art, as well as exhibited in the local art scene.
This is a lovely original painting by this artist, housed in its original period frame, size is 20x24 on canvas, and is in excellent condition. Another fine painting from the inventory of Vander Molen Fine Art.
