Water Color & Oil Paintings
Recently I have begun painting with watercolors using the same techniques I have mastered in my oil paintings for the past 20 years. Watercolors are portable and dry immediately which allows the artist to frame and display with ease. Also the variety of bright and vivid colors add to creativity.
I just received word back from an online art appraisal company regarding the value of this oil painting that we have. It is a George Carpenter oil on masonite board measuring 20" x 30" image area. It is titled "Cundy's Harbor". We received it as a gift from a friend who was moving some years ago. The appraisal came in as $1000 to $1500. Jean my wife loves it and remembers seeing it in a window display in a gallery in Rockport, MA years ago.
