I picked a couple of paintings up today by an artist named Val Ruel.









The second one is dated 1954. It has a real "Don the Beachcomber" theme going on.

The framing has a label marked "Keeble and Barbour Picture Framing, 441 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, California".

Anyone familiar with the artist?

Thanks for your help,

PTD

*Bump*

Anyone from the Bay Area familiar with the artist or framing company?

I'm absolutely no help at all, except I'd look for a guy who looks like the guy in the hammock... I'm guessin' that's Val right there.

That's a good idea, although I doubt he still looks like the guy in the painting.

It was painted in 1954, so he would be about 54 years older!
