This watercolor of a village winter scene is very nicely executed. The artist’s use of blue, turquoise and purple set the tone for this wintry piece. Yet, there is warmth ahead for the village walker as he makes his way to one of the buildings with soft yellow light coming through the windows. It is signed Martin "82 on the bottom center right. On the back is a note from the artist, gifting this piece to Gayle and Marshall Peden, who reside in Archer County, TX. I don’t know who the artist is – there are several Charles Martins who can be found through Google, but I feel sure he is/was a local artist from the north Texas area. The view of the painting measures 13 ¾” x 10 ½”, and the framed, double-matted piece measures 20” x 16 ¼”. The frame is nicely-molded, thin wood stained in a rich, deep brown; it is matted with terracotta and deep brown mats. Non-glare glass helps keep reflections off of this truly interesting painting. Everything is in excellent shape – no cracks in the glass, clean matting, and perfect painting, and there don’t seem to be any dings in the wooden frame.
