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.

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.

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.

W. Metzler Watercolor Painting with River, Trees and Colorful Flowers

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″.

W. Metzler Watercolor Painting with Lake, Trees and Colorful Flowers

This is one of two paintings by W. Metzler that I found at a Goodwill in Buffalo, NY. The paintings each cost $12, but I had $5 off. It appears to be watercolor and maybe some acrylic paint on paper. If came framed and double matted. The painting measures about about 17″ X 23″.

Carl R Zimmerman Watercolor Pastel Painting Three Stemmed Willow

I found this painting by Carl R. Zimmerman at a Savers thrift store for $7. It is watercolor and pastel. It came matted and framed, though the frame looked to be a little stained and should be replaced. The title of the painting is listed on the back as Three Stemmed Willow.

Gerry Schwartz Watercolor Painting Meditative Reflections

This painting is by Gerry Schwartz. I did a search, and I believe she is from Pittsford, NY. I found it at a Goodwill store for $6. It was matted and framed. The painting is watercolor and is titled on the back at Meditative Reflections. It is pretty showing the trees reflecting off the water. And hint of sun behind the trees.

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.

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?
