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.

Sister Mary Louise Heffernan SSJ - Watercolor Painting - Medieval Schola, Tuscany Italy

I bought this painting for $5 at a thrift store. It measures about 10″ X 14″. It’s dated 4/2003 on the back. Doing a search, the artist, Mary Louise Heffernan SSJ, is a Sister of Saint Joseph of Rochester. It was matted and framed.

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″.

L. Browning Watercolor Painting Buildings

I found this painting at Savers for 12 cents. It had been mismarked. I am not sure what the price was supposed to have been, but they sold it to me for the 12 cents. It came matted and framed. The artist’s name is L. Browning. There is a card on the back stating “L. Browning, Original Contemporary Art In Mixed Media Including Handmade Paper And Paper Sculpture. Commissions Available In Custom Colors, Sizes, Mats, Frames.” But unfortunately gives no more information than that. I saw another painting of what looked like a flowering cactus by the same artist at the same thrift store, but it was priced at $25.

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.
