SOLD  The "Diane" By Doug Trafford


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

This is an original artwork by the late Port Ryerse Ontaio folk artist, Doug Trafford (1927-2012).  It is of the "Diane" described on the back as a 1927-1930 Hacker Craft owned by a Mr. Arner of Buffalo New York. Doug loved pleasure boats, and late in life started painting portraits of boats that he had known over his life.  He painted several boats in a pleasant, strait forward style in the last six years of his life.  Doug always put a label on the back of his paintings giving the name and a bit of information about the boat.(see attached photo). Signed "DT" on the front. This undated work was probably painted about 2010.  It is in excellent original condition.  Framed by the artist.  9 1/2" x 12 1/2".
