We acquired numerous pieces of seascapes and paintings of waterfowl from the estate of a Midwestern State University (Wichita Falls, TX) professor, who spent her summers on the Florida coast, apparently yearning to escape the hot, dry, landlocked North Texas area. Among her collection were several watercolors by artist Ruth Cline.
This miniature watercolor by Cline is just a small sample of her beautifully executed works. Measuring 4 ½” x 3”, it depicts three cranes happily wading in the water at the shoreline. It is held in place by a 7” x 5” off-white mat. I haven’t been able to satisfactorily research Ruth Cline, which seems strange since the estate had a number of paintings by her, but the piece seems to be several years old, since the tape on the back has dried and turned brown – only on the mat, not on the watercolor. The painting is signed at the lower left side and is in excellent condition.
