Fine Art/oil painting


I too, have a landscape oil painting by Wehler. Although there isn't an inital in front of his/her name.
It is numbered, 13215F028, on the back and says" This is an original oil painting".
The canvas is very fragile, when I touched it I put a 3 cornered tear in it.
The painting is quite large 24"x36", without the frame.
I haven't found an artist with this name, but several years ago, an acquaintance told me she studied about this artist in college. She said, she thought that the artist had another career and only painted for relaxation. His wife secretly sold some of the paintings when they needed money. I don't know how true this is.
Let know if you want a jpeg of this landscape and I will send one.  

Dear Veva,
If you would like to send jpeg images to me please keep each image of a reasonable size (not too large), and send them as “attachments”, do not embed 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 (90% of respondents do not send me images of the back, I can obtain nearly as much information from the back as from the front), 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. I do NOT research prints or artwork post-1940.
