I learned something new today!! I've admired a few of those works and not put them to the same artist.

Thanks!

I like the Peaceable Kingdom too,and Noah's Ark - can't say I've seen these before, but as I've come to appreciate Friday is Fine Art Friday.
Thanks, Esther.

This was the best selection you have had yet. I particularly like the George Washington and Founding Fathers painting.
