From time to time, it has been RedKettle’s habit to offer some of the inventory of paintings by sale at auction, and three of my current acquisitions are being offered at the moment through http://www.levisauctions.com/
This framed watercolour on paper, sized at 10.25×15 inches, by Toni Onley (1928-2004) will close on November 6. It is #470 in the online catalogue. It is being offered at “Silent Auction” so be sure to familiarize yourself with the method of bidding if you are interested.
Onley’s works continue to sell well and this is a very strong, yet subtle piece that will stand alone or enhance your existing collection. Don’t miss out on your chance to pick up a beautiful piece of Canadian art that is ready to hang on your wall – already framed, and mounted in an archival quality mat.
Two other pieces will be auctioned with the rest of the catalogue listings, which will end on November 12. 2011.
These are two more distinctively Canadian watercolours, both unframed for easy and inexpensive shipping.
Above is Peter Paul Ochs’ (1931-1994) unframed watercolour on paper called Magic Valley Lahaina. Lot # 773. Sized at 13x 18.5 inches, when matted and framed this painting will make a bold statement on your wall. The colours lend themselves well to many different decors and styles. As you can see, the painting is titled and signed in the lower right quadrant.
And lastly, the lovely unframed watercolour on paper of “Pond Skaters” unsigned, but attributed to George Menendez Rae (1906-1992) sized at 14.5×21.75 inches. Lot #831. This painting is so timely for the coming winter holiday season and will make a strong splash of colour in your room. Although a retro mid century piece, there is a timeless quality to this piece of art which will lend itself well to any decor and any style of home.
The catalogue is an interesting one – be sure to look through, and be sure to get ready to bid – if you haven’t a paddle number you will need to contact Levis and get one arranged. RedKettle is pleased to offer several lovely works for you to acquire – what could be more affordable than to bid what you feel is a good price, and perhaps win a treasure!
Until next week – Mich (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Janet wish you a pleasant and mild November!
