Arleen Huseby - Sunset on the Marsh - oil on board - P2604

Regular price $750.00

Labeled, titled (and sub-titled by the artist as "Original Sketch by Arleen Huseby"), we find this to be a great deal more than that: a delicate capture of that most evanescent of moments by an artist intent on getting it down and getting it right. She succeeds beautifully.

Art measures 18 1/2" x 22 1/2". Frame is 27 1/4" x 23 1/4" x 1 1/2".
