Seamus Liam O'Brien + Albert Bierstadt "Sierra Nevada 1 (with rubber duck)"
acrylic paint on printed canvas
16 x 24 inches
On April 18, 2023 I purchased a framed painting (print on canvas) from Hidden Treasures Thrift Store at 2915 Pentagon Dr, St. Anthony, MN 55418. The image depicts an idyllic mountainous landscape with a family of deer standing in the foreground by the edge of a clear blue lake. My research online of the work led me to discover that the picture is based on an oil painting by the artist Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902), a German-American painter best known for his large landscape paintings of the American West. I painted a large, yellow rubber duck (with sunglasses) on the store's painting and completed this "new" collaborative artwork on May 13, 2023. A successful partnership! Thank you AL, for your contribution to the work!!
