R. Thornton Watercolor/Gouache Painting Of Cottage and Girl With Ducks

I found this painting while visiting thrift stores in Buffalo, NY. At first, I thought it was a print, but after looking at it with my loupe, I realized it was an original. The painting is watercolor with gouache. It is framed and matted, but the visible portion of the painting measures about 21″ x 29.5″. This painting is larger than most of the others I have seen listed as being by this artist. I haven’t  found a ton of information about the artist. What I have found suggests he is a British artist that painted from the last decade of the 1800’s through early 1900’s. So this painting could be 100 years old. The painting was priced at $25. But due to the color of the tag was half off, so I only paid $12.50 plus tax. I have found listings of his paintings being sold at auction on one site for up to $875. And found one of his paintings sold at Christie’s, East for $2000.

Martha B McFall Painting Near Franconia Notch, White Mountains, NH

 

I found this painting at a thrift store today for $5. I love it. It’s most likely acrylic, but might be oil. The artist was Martha B. McFall. The painting is dated 1979. On the back of the frame are some notes: “Impressions: White Mts, NH (near Franconia Notch) Fall”  also “Best In Show, 1st Prize, Long Ridge ’79.” The painting measures 30″ x 36″. I did a search and found a Martha B. McFall (December 11, 1918 – June 19, 2008) who lived in Walworth, NY. I believe she was the same Martha B. McFall. The painting style reminds me of Paul Cezanne.

I bought this painting at a Goodwill for $6. It is signed simply “Scalice”. I don’t know anything about the artist. The painting is matted and framed. The painting measures about 14″ x 20″.

Watercolor Painting Of Boats On The Water At Low Tide And Sunset

I bought this painting for $8. It has really nice color. Unfortunately I am unable to make out the artist’s name. If I had to guess, it might be Harry Drake? It is dated 1991.

Watercolor Artist Signature

Deborah Bolduc Watercolor Painting Of House On The Ocean

I found this painting at a Goodwill for $6. It’s a watercolor painting measuring 8″x 10″. It’s signed Deborah Bolduc. The painting shows part of a house in the upper corner, a sandy beach and waves crashing against the rocks.

Impressionist Painting Of House And Trees

I found this painting at a Salvation Army for $8. There is no signature. My guess is it was done as a decorative painting, or by an amateur painter. But I like it. The painting is on a 24″ x 36″ canvas and came in a frame. There is a small hole in the canvas where a nail came through from someone trying to secure the painting in the frame. Not sure if it was done in oil or acrylic.

George Neczyporuk Oil Painting Trees And Stream

I found this oil painting by George Neczyporuk at a thrift store for $8.  The painting is simply signed “G. Neczyporuk.”  The painting measures 18″ X 24″ and is painted on canvas. It came with a frame, though the frame is a little chipped up. Searching Google, I have found a few other paintings by this artist, but nothing about the artist.

This is the second of two paintings by W. Metzler that I found at a Goodwill in Buffalo, NY. They were $12 apiece. But I had $5 off as well. They appear to be watercolor and maybe some acrylic paint on paper. They came framed and double matted. The painting measures about about 17″ X 23″.
