    Left to right #2031 Black Capped Chickadee, #2032 Purple Finch on a Notaway Branch, #2030 Male Goldfinch on a Branch. All 6"x6" framed with 4" hole in mat. These are each dated about 2-3 weeks apart so it may have taken about that long to complete each watercolor. I haven't had them out of the frame so not sure of the size of the works. Very detailed, though. When I have a chance, I will research the artist and post my findings on my art collection web site on the Other Artists page. They were each $2.99 but I got a 25% veterans discount.

      Thanks for the loves and comments folks! There are numerous articles about Sholund and this youtube video:

      He has physical limitations the explain why it takes so long for him to complete a painting. I'm sure it takes him longer, now, than in 1991 as his disease continues to progress.

      These are lovely. They'd make a nice little triptych hanging on a wall :)

      Thanks for the loves guys and the comment Laura. The only space I have for these is between two door frames which are just a bit further apart than the size of the frames, so I'll hang them vertically in that space, if I decide to hang them.
