Fine Art/oil painting


Laurie Adams Oil on Board
Laurie Adams Oil on Bo  
I acquired this oil on board approximately 35 years ago at a flea market in Glendale, Arizona. It measures 26 X 50 including frame.  I am unable to identify the artist. Maybe you know something.  Your assistance is very much appreciated.


Laurie, thanks so much for the kind feedback.  One more tack to take would be to talk to a dealer/gallery out in AZ.  Try these folks...send them a shot of the painting and tell them where/when you found it.  Perhaps they will recognize a local artist from the last century.

This reminds me of a dude ranch I went to in a valley north of Phoenix about an hour...very pretty country.

I am sorry I cannot find any listed artist by the name of L. Paul, which is what I make the signature out to be.  Do you disagree?  I went through all the _ Paul permutations.  I would conclude this is probably just not a listed American artist.  Such is the case with 95% of the pictures folks send to me on this service.  

That is a pretty big picture, so it might bring several hundred dollars in a sale.  If you are selling.

This does not mean you have a painting of low value.  I hope you gain much enjoyment from it every day!
