Original frame

This painting, along with three other like-size and framed painting-siblings, was featured in our weekly email on 10/27/17 along with the following gallery comments:

Gray and rainy in Indianapolis today. What a wonderful six months of temperate weather we leave behind—one of the nicest summers I can remember. Sucks to be you, California ;-). James Eccles had a career as a banker in Chicago and in his retirement, painted full time. Most of his works were Brown County landscapes. He combined travel and other paintings emanate from the Far East and Caribbean. Today’s four pieces are great little examples. They’re all in Eccles trademark ‘high-key’ style and typical of his Brown County work showing the spare, rural existence. The 8×10 format works really well for Eccles — his style and composition ring very true in this small size. All four pieces are in excellent shape, have been through light cleaning and all are housed in the original frames (Eccles specials — gesso over a gold base). Charming paintings.
