1950s Original Vintage Oil Painting Seascape Noyo Harbor, Mendocino Fort Bragg California-Dick Daniels

Vintage California seascape oil painting on wood board of a boat near seawalls.

The piece is signed and dated, "Dick Daniels, 3/21/52" and measures 35 7/8" x 23 7/8". The boat appears to be coming in from sea, the water crashing between the two walls, a quiet cloudy blue sky overhead, and seagulls above, below, and beside the boat.

Power lines lines one wall, with large rocks alongside. There is a hill or mountain on the other side with a larger rock out towards sea. There is a bit of smoke coming from the smokestack on the boat and a yellow and green flag raised at the top of the mast.

Richard "Dick" Daniels (1925-2008) was an amateur painter from the Northern California town of Ukiah. Originally from the nearby coastal town of Fort Bragg, Daniels liked to paint coastal seascapes. Many of his seascapes were of the Mendocino coast. ~ The Ukiah Daily Journal
