connoisseurs of John Hare, Robert Woods, Russell CM?
I have a picture watercolored called Green Valley, by John Hare, an oil painting by Robert Woods Lake Pine Grove name. An oil painting by Robert Woods, a copy of the days of the west w / a cowboy riding a bucking bronco. Is signed with a big C and M in the interior of C, and the name of Russell. It has a dead cow's head with horns and then the # 's 1899 on it. I would like some information about these paintings and to get an idea of its value. I was told that I have only one year. I know that some of Hare jonh paitings found in major museums. Please advise. Thank you, God bless.
You could try a Google search of John Hare, or if you know of a museum with their work, ask them. Robert Wood is the artist, some not, Woods. Try a good auction house somewhere in the southwest of it. As for printing, Charles Marion Russell, a very popular and well-known Western artists. Since only an impression, its value is likely to be fairly minimal unless your actually signed by the artist and is an issue very small. Any good auction house or gallery west of Western art must be able to give an estimate.
direct me to some sites -- original mid century or modern art paintings?
I am looking to add some mid century/modern/minimalist type artwork to my walls in the form of a painting or two. I would most likely enjoy oil on canvas or something like that I think, I dunno. I am not an artist or expert in it, just an admirer . My whole house is done up in 1950s/WW2/mid-mod style. Think:"Mad Men." Anyway, having trouble finding decent sites where I can 1. just view various artists' work and 2. order online 3. not thousands of dollars
You might try this site online: art.glencoe.com

These sounds as products of a paint factory east, where teams of artists work on a production line. The signatures are invented so there is no information available on individual artists. Paintings of this type are purchased in large quantities by the sale of furniture and have very little resale value.
Oil Paintings On Canvas: The Paints Behind The Creations
Oil paintings on canvas are created by adding pigment to oil and then applying it to a canvas sheet that has been stretched taut. Linseed oil was commonly used in early modern Europe, but safflower, walnut, and poppy seed oil has also been used. Each type of oil allots a different length of drying time, as well as the varying amount of yellowing that occurs as the painting dries.
The benefits of oil-based paints include the ability to apply paint to a canvas and not have the paints quickly run into one another. When paints run into one another, they tend to alter the desired color and can cause a painting to turn out far different than the original idea planned for it. The drying time is longer than with water-based paints, so mixing colors directly on a canvas is possible.
The oil allows for the mixing to be possible for a longer period of time, since most water-based paints dry almost instantly. For example, if more white needs to be added to lighten a color that has already been applied, it will mix better with the paint. On the other hand, water-based paints will often completely cover the current color it is being added to.
Traditionally, oil paintings are sketched out onto the canvas first and then color is added to them later. Charcoal is the typical medium used for sketching the subject of the painting. In order to shorten or lengthen drying time of oil paints, turpentine or mineral spirits can be added to the paints. When multiple layers of paint are added to the canvas, each layer should contain more oil than the last layer. This addition of oil each time reduces the risk of cracking and peeling that can occur.
Linseed oil is the most common base in oil paints. This kind of oil comes from the seed of the flax plant. For less yellowing during the drying period, some people find that using safflower oil helps. While lighter colors will hold their true color better with the safflower oil, this type of oil does have a much longer drying time. Paints made with either of these oils cannot be cleaned up with water.
Two new types of oil-based paints have arrived, thanks to the advancement of chemistry. One type of paint contains water miscible oil, which means that it can be cleaned up with water.
The other type of paint has an endless amount of drying time since heat is required to dry it. This latter type of oil-based paint must be heated between 265 to 280 degrees Fahrenheit. Creations made on canvas with this type of paint can be altered until the extreme heat is added.
Oil paints that are already mixed and pre-stretched canvas can be purchased from art supply stores. While this is often the easiest route to take for making oil paintings on canvas, some artists enjoy crushing their own pigment and mixing paints personally. No matter how the materials are acquired, the freedom of painting on canvas that oil paints ensue is a great experience for even the most novice artist.
