"The Path Unknown"

I guess the saying's true...  "One man's trash is another man's treasure..."

Went the dumpster and this is what I found ~ just waiting for me to take it home:

How completely relevent to my life right now.  No idea where the path will lead, whether or not to even take it... or who's hand to hold along the way...   If anyone's.

It's an A. Sheldon Pennoyer oil painting.  I can't seem to find it online, so I'm calling it "The Path Unknown." 

Blessings,

Chelle

What a beautiful treasure you found, Chelle!  I believe that nothing is 'coincidental'... you found that painting because you were supposed to.  Somehow God knew that it would bring you pleasure, and maybe a bit of insight..

Much love

A. Sheldon PENNOYER
1888 - 1957

Albert Sheldon Pennoyer was born in Oakland, California on April 5, 1888, the son of a prosperous dry goods merchant who founded Capwell's. The Pennoyer family moved to nearby Berkeley while Sheldon was a child. After one year at the University of California, he sailed to Paris to study architecture at Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He soon opted to become a painter instead and studied art at Académies Julian and Grand Chaumière under Ménard and Lucien Simon. At the outbreak of World War One, he left Europe and returned to his home in Berkeley. About 1919 he moved permanently to New York City but spent much time at his mother's home in Litchfield, Connecticut. Although he maintained a studio in New York City during his last 38 years, he made many painting trips to California and had a studio shack on his brother's property at Lake Tahoe. He was the author of This Was California (1938) and Locomotives in Our Lives (1954). Pennoyer died in an auto accident in Madrid, Spain on August 17, 1957. Working in pastel, gouache and oil, he painted coastals, portraits, landscapes, railroad subjects, and scenes from his travels in Spain, Portugal, Central America, and the United States. Member: American Federation of Arts; San Francisco Art Ass'n; American Watercolor Society; Century Club; National Arts Club; Allied Artists of America; American Artists Professional League; Oakland Art Ass'n. Exhibited: Schussler Galleries (San Francisco), 1914; Panama Pacific International Exposition, 1915; California Artists, Golden Gate Park Museum, 1915;
