While I have some pretty cool noted artists included in my Thrift Art collection, there still remain some amazing paintings that for now belong in the Tomb of the Unknown Artists.
Can you help me Solve these Beautiful Mysteries???
I've had this beautiful painting hanging in both of our homes & I really love it!
36" X 36" Oil Painting Signed Sandoval.
There is an artist Robert Sandoval in Taos, but I was informed that this was not his signature...
This wonderful Geisha has been hanging as a centerpiece over the flat screen for a few months now.
She's just stunning & so masterfully painted.
12 X 24 Oil Painting of Geisha signed MFR?
I found this mixed media piece at an Antique Shop in Torrance, CA.
I was drawn to the whimsy & petina of this amazing assemblage on thick block of wood.
The faces are drawn on rocks, and the small rock at the bottom is signed IRWIN.
I thought it may possibly be by Long Beach native & famous CA artist Robert Irwin.
I've sent out a few feelers to research the possibility, but still haven't been able to connect any dots.
I believe I've uncovered the mystery of the Irwin piece, and oddly enough have also bought another piece of his work. I found this photo online on a Skinner auction page, and it just has to be the same artist.
Maybe someday the other makers will be revealed too, but for now I love them each the same. All of these amazing works of art are proudly displayed around our home.
