I own two paintings that come from the same artist. As with any work of art, I often wonder about this man (or a woman), that placed the brush strokes over the canvases, creating two tranquil landscapes. They seem to be both inspired by a coastline in a warm climate, judging from the composition.
I have placed both paintings on the large south wall of my living room. In spring, summer and early autumn, the setting sun slowly casts its rays upon the canvases, first one, then the other. The warm light amplifies the colours, adding to the perception of the actual sunrise or sunset depicted within the landscape. It is an unusual, almost a magical sight.
Both are absolutely beautiful artworks in my eyes. The way the artist manged to capture the colours of the rocks and the sea, the reflection of the sun in its surface and the meeting of the land and the ocean and the white foam of the surf, is uncanny.
These magnificent pieces were given to me as a gift by my parents. Obtained in a shop that dealt with reselling of artwork, the sellers claimed the artist to be known and the works considered to be of a certain value.
To be honest, the only value these hold for me is a sentimental one. I genuinely love the style, the concept and the motifs. However, I still wonder who the artist is or was and where and when these artworks were created. The signature is difficult to read and makes no sense to me. I have tried to search the net on names that the letters might represent, but no luck.
Does any of you have a suggestion of what the name is of the artist that signed these paintings?
