I also own 2 of R. Scotts oil painting and I did not buy them at a furniture store. These are both exceptional works of art with a great eye for natural beauty. I'm always amazed at how these abstract art critics cant say anything good about anything unless it is smeared paint and doesn't look like anything.

Hi very funny that some people think that R Scott is  SOFA PAINTER I collect art and I appreciate good work, I paid 1350 euro for an excellent poppy scene, well worth the money

Oh thank God! I've been searching ALL DAY for something...Anything on this artist. I have a painting that has the same signature on it and was wondering about it's value. I'm so glad that I finally ran across this forum! =) Thanks so much for your input Brent. Guess I will forget about selling it now.

I have a R Scott oil on canvas of a small trappers or prospectors cabin beside a small waterfall. I inherited it from my grandmother, i remember it from when i was a child i am now 50. It is in the same frame it has always been in. I too have wondered if it had any real value.

Just Purchased an R. Scott oil painting at a garage sale for $3. (same signature) I feel very fortunate and don't care what it's worth because the painting is so beautiful and speaks to me. I will still look for more info though-I like to write a note to the artist to say Thank you.

Here in Omaha I just found a beautiful R. Scott painting of a small double waterfall in the woods with snow-topped mountains in the background. My fiance and I both love it and only paid $15! I'd love to learn some more about this mystery artist.

Hi Cathy,

See below for a little information as requested. I don't consider anyone who paints this beautifully to be other than fine arts. It takes skill to paint with such detail and color from memory. Sorry Brett, but I just don't agree with you, but i would proudly hang it above my sofa.

The artist, R. Scott, was born in Michigan and grew up on his grandparents' farm in Canada. With a love for the outdoors, wildlife and animals - especially horses - Scott brings his intimate knowledge based on his early life of the farm and rodeo circuit to his artwork.

Formally trained at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Scott's artwork has appeared commercially in national magazines such as Wildlife Art News and Art West and in illustrations for children's book and books depicting the West. In addition, his works are displayed in many prominent galleries throughout the United States and Europe.

Scott has won numerous awards for his artwork throughout the country. His single most famous work is "Bull Rider" a bronze commissioned by The Franklin Mint. Not only has R. Scott been selected "Western Artist of the Year" in 1991, he is the 1992 featured artist for the National Wildlife Federation and his painting "Gathering Burros" was issued in the form of a stemp by the US Postal Service in 1993.

Three of Scott's paintings, "Picture of Courage", "Packing What Little They Had", and "Sgt's Patrol" depict American Buffalo Soldiers of the late 19th and early 20th century. His personal involvement with the history of these brave fighting men extends from his relationship to his brother who was in the last segregated U.S. Army regiment in World War II, and his nephew, who is a graduate of West Point Military Academy.
