Includes additional small brass oak leaves frame, along with poppy painting in frame.
Large original painting of tomato red poppies and greenery in a gold painted wood frame with geometric pattern. Vintage wall art by Helen Gomez-Perales. 14.5" x 19" in size.
Plywood backed canvas so artfully painted, in what appears to be a homemade frame. The colors pop, the style is a sort of odd but lovable mix of traditional and kitsch, and the result is a punchy, colorful, off-beat work of art. I researched the signature, and did find some information about Mrs Gomez-Perales, a Canadian artist, including the fact that her paintings have appeared in movies including "Capote."
In this piece, diamonds are stamped into the wood frame and painted a shimmering gold, and there's a simple wire to hang it, on the back. Condition is excellent with a couple of signs of age: the odd wee scratch or splinter off the frame, and the fact that the backing is held on with duct tape and is loosening some at one corner. This could be remedied if you're in the mood, but it could honestly just be hung as is, too.
Signature written on the wood backing reads:
"Mrs. Helen Gomez Perelis
Kohuska" (her maiden name).
