Five Students at Westfield Creative Arts at the Rinnova Building last night! Two were brand new and did excellent! Lois almost finished her Vermont landscape (my acrylic version below). Sandy who was visiting Gloria came and started the Hampton Ponds autumn landscape (my acrylic version below). She was dabbing the paint like a master impressionist! Scott started a dramatic close up of a tropical flower. Phylliss, a first time student did very well with an Hawaiian Beach scene! Gloria almost finished her Bridge of Flowers garden scene. Each student worked on their own different painting and kept me hopping!! Great fun!!
I received the painting below as a gift years ago and just got an appraisal from an online art appraisal company. It is a large pastel painting of a lighthouse and is dated 1976. The artist was Nathan Kredenser and the light house is Ned Point Light in Mattapoisett, MA. Value is only $200-$300 because he was a relatively unlisted artist who specialized in murals.
