Description:
Richard Mayhew's oil painting, "Post-Meridian," illustrates a landscape scene painted in varying shades of purple, blue, and green. Depicting sky and shrubbery, this painting is a fine example of Mayhew's more modern artwork. A well known and respected painter, Mayhew is often cited for his use of vibrant colors and painted, somewhat abstract, landscape scenes. AP2018
