Last Day of Summer, Strathglas, Rumford, Maine, Diana Young, 2006, 40 x 40 inches, oil on canvas, $3280
Last Day of Summer, Strathglas, Rumford, Maine, 2006, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $2550 – This pastoral Maine landscape illustrates the perspective of school children in a small rural Maine town as summer has come to a close. The figures are poised to play, but seem frozen. The end of play and the beginning of the rigidity of education in the very near future. Features the Strathglas Building in the far background, a landmark of Rumford, Maine.

 

Sydney's Garden House, 2004, Diana Young, 36 x 36 inches, gouache, $3200
Sydney’s Garden House, 2004, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 36 x 36 inches, gouache on board, $3240 – The color palette of this painting of a garden terrace radiate blue with interwoven colors throughout. The playful perspective and symmetry pull this piece together into a unified design and feeling. An exceptional example of Diana Young’s best characteristics as a painter.
Mall Doors (1999) 36"x35" oil on canvas by Tobin Sprout, $8500
Door Reflections, 1999, Tobin Sprout, American b. 1955, 36 x 35 inches, oil on canvas, $8500 – A rare technical anomaly shows a ghosted image of the painter’s wife, Laura, and young son, Turner, exiting the open mall door on the left. Sprout rarely changes direction after a painting has started, making this a one of a kind of the “Superchrome” series.
Of 40-50 Superchromes painted from the early 1990s through the early 2000s, just three remain available to the public. This is one of the last three, including “White Villa,” “Gas Tanks,” and “Mall Doors.”

"Fifth Street," 1993, Tobin Sprout, American b. 1955, 42 x 32 inches, oil on canvas
Fifth Street, 1993, Tobin Sprout b. 1955, 42 x 32 inches, oil on canvas, $9,800 – “Facebook First” listing. New large photorealism from Tobin Sprout shows a deserted street corner surrounded by downtown buildings in Dayton, Ohio. A large cigarette billboard is over exposed in light with a prominent flag theme and giant, legible warning. Reflected light baths corner in fluorescence, evocative of Edward Hopper urban night scenes of the mid-century. Featured in Flood’s three-part essay, “Carefully Described Terrain.” Read, “Part I: The Billboard” here
Gas Tanks, 1998, Tobin Sprout, American b. 1955, 38"x36" oil on canvas, $9500
Gas Tanks, 1998, Tobin Sprout, American b. 1955, 38 x 36 inches, oil on canvas, $9500 – These portraits of a motley assembly of disembodied motorcycle gas tanks continues Sprout’s exploration and fascination with the beauty and impermanence of 20th Century industrial design. An atypical painting in the series of Sprout’s “Superchrome” oversize photorealism,” “Gas Tanks” from 1999 is less sparkle, more tonal and meditative. The composition moves neatly towards a balanced abstraction of similar but different forms. A beauty of artistic observation.
Of 40-50 Superchromes painted from the early 1990s through the early 2000s, just three remain available to the public. This is one of the last three, including “White Villa,” “Gas Tanks,” and “Mall Doors.” (Update 2/20: “White Villa” is NFS.)

Enter Here, 2007, Diana Young, American b. 1936, 40 x 40 inches, acrylic on canvas, $2,850 – A running joke in Maine has it that roadside businesses, particularly home-based businesses along Route 1, are famous for sending mixed messages about where the actual entrance is. Tourists and even locals are frequently tossed into confusion regarding where they are supposed to enter.
Flags are a classic antidote to the confusion and this painting by Diana Young uses strident iconography to signal this is THE entrance to this building. Perfect painting for an office or building environment, with the quintessential explosive palette of an original painting by Diana Young. Priced under par as an incentive for a business owner to take the splash and bring this daily explosion of joy to work.
