Wonderful original watercolor painting of two boys sitting on rocks on a sea shore, poking at a crab with a stick, their dog ready to pounce on the crab. It is signed simply B.H. in the bottom right corner. We were told it is most likely Robert Ball Hughes, but not positive, he did sign his watercolors with a simple B.H. It measures approx. 10 1/2" x 13", matted, glazed and framed approx. 18" x 20 3/4".

    Sold by Estate Auctions, Inc. on ebay auction for  $162 in March  2012. 

    Robert Ball Hughes reportedly painted seascapes. Another seascape, Looking West, can be seen at Paintings by Robert Ball Hughes.

Signature "B H"
