It appears that there are a lot of paintings by this artist out there - and that they are quite alike.
It may be that they were all painted by a group of Asian artists that sell their paintings through Furniture stores and the like for prices ranging from $100 on up to a $1000.
That's what these appear to be. There are just too many that are alike. what happens is that there is a painting that the group copies from - in this example, a 48" painting with mountains, a waterfall, valley, and a cabin. All the artists are paid to paint the same picture - as close a copy as they can make. And they always signe it in the lower right hand corner (looking at it) with the same name - R. Boren.
These paintings don't have much artistic value - they are usually made using a basic palette and a knife - the knife is used to make most of the paint strokes - trees, birds, leaves - etc. it's quick and efficient. And by the way, looks beautiful to the untrained eye.
Only a trained art student, or a master will see these paintings for what they truly are - mass produced for the masses.
Why do you think most end up in yard sales? at flea markets? at Goodwill? and for what? 50 cents? a dollar? for free?
But as we all know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder - there are fans of R. Boren's works out there - whether or not they are truly by him/her or not, or by Asian Art Students making a quick buck.
Art is meant to be enjoyed, right? so enjoy it, but don't think about selling it, because you'll most likely have to give it away - or let it languish on Ebay like those paintings for sale have been languishing for years. yes - check completed listings and you'll see that R. Boren paintings never sell at all - nope, never......and you wonder why?
