Nothing like a grasshopper in a world of color to attract your attention. This is one of those paintings for me, that I passed up and all but dismissed, but, I kept coming back to. The painting is in our kitchen of all places and seems right at home against the light green walls. There is a nice varied color scheme so it would look at home almost anywhere
This delightful and colorful watercolor is signed Shields in the lower left hand corner. It is mounted on acid free paper and custom framed. There were others works by Shields at the auction I attended and his work was well received .
The painting I have measures approximately 23-3/4" by 29-3/4" by 1" and the sight window 23-1/2" by 17-1/2". It is framed in a classic gold metal frame and the works being sold by Shields were from the 80's.
