Fine Art/Paul Wesley Arndt


Good Morning Daniel,
I recently acquired a beautiful painting and would like to know about the artist. There is a signiture in the bottom left corner - ARNDT - all in caps. The oil on board measures 25"x19". I had emailed the Canadian artist Roger D. Arndt who does similar work but claims that it is not one of his. The framing looks 1920s-1940s which would mean that he wasn't born yet but it is in the time-frame of the American painter who did landscapes of the American West. If you could help, it would be appreciated. There is no way that I can attach photos with this format - perhaps I will be able to with your reply on receipt of this question. I do have pix showing the entire painting, some technique areas and a shot of the signiture. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Larry,
If you would like to send jpeg images to me please keep each image under 800 pixels, and send them as “attachments”, do not imbed them in your email. If you are looking for identification or opinion regarding your painting best would be an image of the front (just the painting, don't include your lovely living room or pick-up truck), the back, and close-ups of the signature, details of the brush-work, and any inscriptions or labels (use the macro setting on your camera for these close-ups). You can send this information to my email at and make your subject line “allexperts” so I do not bounce you as spam. It would be nice to receive feedback as I do this on my own time with no remuneration, free, no charge, nada.
