The gorgeous 1986 W. Johnson framed and signed seascape painting on wood is in very good condition. While the certain "W. Johnson" that matches the signature is yet to be identified, the incredible balance of color in the contrasting scenery along with the perception of depth and distance in this painting point to a very talented and seasoned artist. Many landscape paintings - seascapes in particular - will have more of a defined line of contrast between the water and the sky. However, in this painting, the artist conveys the contrast between the ocean and sky by toning down the underside of the clouds with a grayish-beige and intensifying the white of the crashing waves. In other words, while its hard to directly point to the particular elements that accomplish the contrast, the overall scene makes it very obvious. While it is hard to be certain, the colors appear to be consistent with oil. Also, the artist has used a much more difficult surface for this gorgeous seascape painting. The surface of the wood that the artist painted over has very small and closely aligned horizontal lines. While up close the scenery is a little harder to identify, from a few feet back the stunning seascape comes to life with crashing waves, birds flying in every direction, and clouds moving effortlessly through the sky. The small ribbed lines provide depth and perception to the overall scene giving the impression of movement along with ever increasing distance to the horizon. While the "W. Johnson" signature is barely discernible in the lower right corner, the back of the frame has "W. Johnson Biloxi 1986". In addition to the incredibly beautiful nautical seascape scene depicted in the painting, it is important to point out the uniqueness of the darker brown to grayish-black wooden frame. The bark-like relief on the surface of the wider frame helps to direct the attention inward toward the scenery. Also, the narrow white band not only provides the perfect dividing line but it also helps to highlight or brighten the toned-down colors of the gorgeous seascape scene.
Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the ChapStick in the photos is not included in the listing as it was used for scale purposes only. In addition, there is already a metal wall-hanging wire installed on the back of the painting.
There are a couple of very small holes - one on the inner left edge and one on the inner right edge - of the scene where a tiny fastener had previously come through. They are hardly noticeable unless inspected up close with a light. Also, there is a tiny spot approximately 3" down from the top near the center of the painting where color didn't cover or a piece of color came off. However, since the sheen of the clear over the painting covers that little spot too, this was most likely done before the painting was completed. In addition, there are a couple of very slightly distressed and very shallow surface chips on the outer left edge of the frame. The longer one is so shallow that it is hard to detect - even with a finger. Other than these, there are no breaks, holes, deep chips, or repair places on this gorgeous W. Johnson framed and signed seascape painting. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the painting - mainly in the form of rub marks around the frame where it has come in contact with different surfaces.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous 1986 W. Johnson signed seascape painting are many. The entryway or living room would be enhanced by the addition of this incredibly detailed and realistic seascape painting. Also, the dining room or master bath would welcome this beautiful landscape painting for its stress-relieving nautical-oceanic charm. In addition, the growing art collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this framed and signed W. Johnson seascape painting.
The collector will appreciate this beautifully framed and signed W. Johnson seascape painting for its very good condition, incredible balance of color, perception of depth and distance, bark-like relief on the frame, nautical-oceanic charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
