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?
