In case you didn't already figure it out, Strataverious is a lovely long haired cat who seems quite relaxed as she sits in the light shade of a flower garden enjoying the cool earth on her belly while waiting to see what unfortunate creature will be the next to enter her domain. Unless the intruder is twice her size, I doubt this cat will be inclined to depart such lovely surroundings and if the trespasser is something the size of a mole or mouse , or even a squirrel, you would be wise to bet our Strataverious would be more than eager to have them for supper. A smaller sized impressionistic oil painting with a lovely frame that really does give a person a fair look into the mind of a cat. Painting is 8 1/2 x 11 1/2 and with the frame mesures is 11 x 13
Another stunning modern art oil painting done in impressionistic style called 'Roman Charioteer'. It did not take me long to see the furious battle or hear the thundering sound of huge war horses pounding a circular path round a huge crowd of spectators who had come to cheer their favorite gladiator on to victory, or curse his dead remains if their wager was lost. Bold, exciting colors and deep texture makes this painting seem so much larger than its actual 13 by 6 inch size. Hand signed by the artist, this is modern art at it's best.
Saturn Defend - Original Oil Painting - Hand Signed
Here is a modern masterpiece of amazing power. The deeper you look into this hot flaming vortex, the more you imagine you'll find if you can just sneak a little bit closer. Impressionism is not for everyone, but this painting does speak to any and all who would stop to look. What do you see? Heavily textured and measuring 30 by 24 inches this vision of some other world is truly a wonderful Oil Painting on art board.

Bernard 40s Framed Picture Art Print Vintage Home Decor
Bernard 40s Framed Picture Art Print Vintage Home Decor. Stylized Decorative Picture of Lovely Lady and Handsome Gentleman, the typical Courting Scene used as Decor in the Modern 1940s room. The wooden frame is blue, with background of aqua leaning towards Robin Egg Blue. Dress is Pink. Other colors are keyed to the colors of rugs & fabrics of that era. Soft grays, browns, peachy pink, and cream. Looks like a watercolor, although it is a print. I can not see a signature. On paper attached to back it says: Bernard - N. Y. C. I am not certain if that is the Artist, a Art Company, or Store. Measures 16 3/4 inches X 19 3/4 inches (includes the frame). Condition is pretty nice for 60+ years. Print is clean, may be a tiny bit of mold specks, although I believe they are mostly on underside of glass. You may wish to re-frame it, just to remove foggy soil on backside of glass. Frame has a small amount of wear, tiny chips mostly near the corners. Glass is nice. Back brown paper is torn a little a in few places around edges. Sticker tag is excellent. Has nice wire & loops without rust. A lovely example of Colonial Romance - very pretty decorative wall decor for a bedroom. Great addition to an American Art Collection.
Turner Tropical Flowers Framed Art Print Eames Era 50s
Turner Tropical Flowers Framed Art Print Eames Era 50s. Beautifully framed White Floral picture of (I believe) Lilies or Orchids. This is a Mid 20th Century Modern Artwork by Turner. It looks similar to a water color, is done on a textured paper, hot chocolate brown background with gorgeous big white flowers, accented with green and brown leaves. Measures 12 inches X 14 inches to outer edges of the frame. The back of the picture shows water stains from a damp wall. There is some super light shadowing of dampness on the lower part of the print, but it is not noticeable from a distance. I'm allergic to mold and smell no odor, so it was only slightly damp and dried well. The frame is wood, painted brown with accented gold hobnail edging. I has a little paint wear and very minor edge / corner dings. Lovely vintage cottage décor for the retro 1940s, 1950s home.
