Evening Solitude by Ted Ellis
I thought I had the original and I wanted to verify my find, so I contacted Ted Ellis via e-mail. The following quotes are from the e-mails:
"Steve, that definitely is my artwork,it looks like a canvas transfer of my print . This is a common process of making a print look like an original. A plastic polymer resin sheet that is heat sensitive is placed over one the print and pressed together. Art distributors and some framers have the ability add this embellishment. Its a great replica, but not an original. (Ted T. Ellis)"
"It still a great deal!!! I painted several seascapes while living in San Jose, CA in the late 80's my teachers were the Garcia family in Milpitas, CA. That's when I decided I wanted art as a career. It's a special piece. Any, keep painting it brings great joy!!! (Ted T. Ellis)"
