    Imagine walking a few steps away and seeing this after I picked up the other Swanson painting. I couldn't believe it. A pastel ! Same artist, same signature ,but so different in style. This guy was really accomplished ! I had to have this too. Ten bucks...sold ! Didn't want to break up the set. The matte is a bit warped from water damage ,but the pastel drawing is fine. I think it was framed much later as it's a chrome and glass frame. So I'm not sure about the date for this one.I haven't taken it apart yet to replace the matte. Maybe it's dated on the edge. -Mike-

      Found a nice frame to replace the chrome and glass one and the warped home made cardboard matte. It was the exact size I needed and only five bucks. Nice simple wood frame with a matte that has tan and blue-grey borders. It perfectly compliments the art paper and the colors in the drawing ! It had an ugly "holly hobby" country garden and ducks picture from the 80's in it. I enjoyed every minute of tearing it out. It was really glued in there and it took a while so I didn't damage the matte. I think he looks much happier in his new home now.

      Hoping this reaches you. Did you ever find out anything about Swanson? We have a portrait of a woman in our home from the same artist. Which we probably purchased 3 years ago as well.

      Nope..not a thing tomten3000. That's how it tends to be. Either you can read the signature and there's no record of a talented amateur or you can't read it and it remains a mystery as to whether it's valuable or not. Just the fun of collecting "original" art. :)
