Description

This is a lovely Impressionist oil painting of a California coastal scene by listed artist Mildred Ames Waters (1898-1991). Sand, sea and sky are depicted in soft colors, with houses and a boat-building barn of weathered gray clapboard, a rowboat and a hammock rounding out the picture. The framed size is 18 inches by 16 inches, actual (sight) size of the painting 8 1/4 inches by 7 3/8 inches and it weighs a little over 3 1/2 pounds.

The wooden frame is 3 1/2 inches wide; it's heavily carved and touched lightly with gilt and has a cream linen liner. This art work has been well kept, with just a few minor nicks to the frame and a bit of age darkening to the liner. There's a hanging wire installed on the reverse, along with a label from an Illinois frame shop that's been around since 1915. We imagine this painting was purchased in California as the memento of a journey there. Mrs. Waters was reputed to have a gallery in Laguna Beach in the 1940's.

Mildred Ames was born in Maine, married Benjamin Waters around 1926-1927 in Riverside, California and lived in CA until 1979, when she moved to Portland, Oregon to live with her daughter. She passed away there in 1991. Waters is listed in "Artists in California, 1786-1940" by Edan Milton Hughes; "Who Was Who in American Art" by Peter Hastings Falk and "Davenport's Art Reference & Price Guide" by R. J. Davenport. This is an excellent example of Mrs. Waters' skillful painting, as well as an appealing work of 20th century California art.
