For your consideration, a charming modernist painting of two wild parrots in the Outsider Art tradition. The oil on canvas board painting displays a strong sense of design and is rendered in a saturated palette of blues, greens, yellows and earth tones. The work is in excellent vintage condition and measures 12” x 9”, framed 13 ½” x 10 ½” (original period wood frame). Signed and dated, with notation on verso “Betty Peterson” with Eugene Oregon framer’s label. An elegant Folk Art work that shows well in a mid century or moderne setting.
