Oli Goldsmith "Donkey Rhubarb"

In my opinion, one of Oli's most beautiful, and also most painterly pieces, this new oil on canvas has some of his best iconic images.  It also brings in some new imagery that seems to have roots in paintings by Chagall and other modernist painters, but with a twist and imagination that is Oli's alone.  The end result is a lively, happy, incredibly engaging piece. 48"l., 60"h.  Canadian, 2011 SOLD

Walnut Dining Table

This exceptionally beautiful, walnut gate leg table has elegant lines and proportions, and opens to 6' long, 5' wide.  When closed, it is only 18" wide.  It is very finely designed and crafted but has no makers label.  There are elements that are similar to Widdicomb pieces by Nakashima as well as pieces by Paul McCobb.  c.1960's SOLD
