Susan Lowans Watercolor Painting Pink Begonias

I found this painting at a Goodwill store for $7. It came matted and framed. The painting is signed S. Lowans. There is a card on the back labelling the painting as Pink Begonias. It also lists the artist’s name as S. Lowans. But searching the phone number on cards, I found a listing for a Susan H. Lowans. The card states “courtesy of Roselawn Galleries.” The phone number has an older area code, so this was painted a while back. I couldn’t find much about the artist other than she was local to the Rochester Area. It’s a very pretty painting. I like it. For some reason, I am reminded of Georgia O’Keeffe, but I don’t know why. I am thinking it’s the subtle shading of the flowers. With the skill of this painting, I am surprised I haven’t been able to find out more about the artist. She is obviously very talented.

Ruth Mennell Watercolor Painting Ocean Shore

I found this painting at a Goodwill thrift store for $4. It is a nicely done watercolor painting signed by Ruth Mennell. It came matted and framed.

M F Shanly Watercolor Painting Pink Rose In Clear Bowl

I found this watercolor painting at an Amvets thrift store for $6. It came matted and framed. The painting is signed M. F. Shanly. It’s very pretty.

J Taft Pastel Painting Scotts Bluff Lake Ontario

I found this pastel painting at a VOA thrift store. It cost $5, and came matted and framed. The frame size is 14″ x 17″. The actual painting is smaller. The artist’s name appears to be J Taft and is signed on both the front and back. On the back it is labelled Scotts Bluff Lake Ontario. There is a number after the artists name: 1001. So maybe this was painted 10/2001?

Claudio Baretti Oil Painting Two Women On Village Street

I found this painting at a Goodwill for $5. It is either oil or acrylic on canvas. Not sure of the artists name. It looks like it is Claudio Baretti. My guess is this is one of those factory painted pieces for decorative use. But I do like the style. And for $5, what the hey. I like it.
