Featured in this lot is framed oil-on-board called “Range Land Romance” by Margie Jackson (born 1934 and passed 2021). The painting features a woman bringing her lover a cup of coffee before they head out to work for the day; the artist’s hallmark can be seen in the bottom right-hand corner. Margie Jackson (1934-2021) was a painter for years before she became a sculptor. Her experience at casting her creations in bronze began around 1976. Jackson lived on a farm in Yelm, Washington, but she grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. Because the range was open and cattle left on their own, they would be prey to packs of wolves and coyotes. Horses were still respected as a means of transportation and the area was plentiful with Native Americans still richly steeped in their own culture, lending to the inspiration of her work. Among her numerous awards are Best of Show-Sculpture at the Celebration of Western Art Show in Olympia, Washington and First and Second places at the 1986 and 1987 Arizona Annual Art Shows. She was commissioned to create bronze and limited-edition prints celebrating the Washington State Centennial; the city of Yelm purchased one of these pieces for installation in the City Hall. The condition of this framed oil-on-board is good, with very slight wear to the frame. The measurements of this oil-on-board are 29 1/2" x 25 1/2". Provenance: This is from the personal Artist Margie Jackson.
