This small oil painting is an original, acquired from the artist Mary Dumer, from Ojai California, an art teacher. This painting is signed and dated 1982, and named "After Michelangelo". We were fortunate to purchase several of her paintings and nature drawings, and some very amazing still lifes, most still unframed. If this painting is familiar to you, it is because it is "copy" of a section of the frescoed ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, one of the true wonders of the art world! This section beautifully depicts Michelangelo's "The Delphic Sibyl" (1509). M.Dumer's interpretation is minus a few angels, but a beautiful rendition in its own right. It measures 13"×15" tall in the frame.
Tree in the Fall
The peaceful nature of this impressionistic painting with its bright fall colors, conjures up a feeling of belonging in the viewer. For who among us doesn't dream of a remote cabin by a high mountain lake surrounded by meadows? Dimensions (inches): H 21.25” W 25.5”
The vivacious colors in this wine country painting in acrylic or oils, portrays a feeling of a peace and timelessness in the countryside of Italy or France, or perhaps even of our beloved local Ruta de Vino in Valle de Guadalupe. Signed but not dated, this piece measures 22" in height, and 28" in width.
Roberts Oil Paintings
