Info on J. Gaston

I obtained this painting at a yard sale today. Found the artist online. Jerome Gaston lived from 1911-1989 in California. Sigs online are similar but not identical. It appears to be his style but the painting is on stretched fredrix canvas. Was that around in the 60s, 70s and 80s?. Size is 16 x 20. Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Info on J. Gaston

I don't know anything about the artist, but Fredrix has been around since 1868:

(and pre-stretched/primed canvas has been around longer than that)

You might want to get in touch with the company to find out if your support is similar to what they were offering 50 or 60 years ago.
C&C of all sorts always welcome! (I don't mind rude or harsh criticism.)
I suppose I have to do this too (my blog, & current work). My Visual Arts Nova Scotia page.

Re: Info on J. Gaston

I am confused on J. Gaston. Most of his paintings are signed in block capital letters. But I have found a couple with more defined small letter j Gaston. Anyone else see this? Is it the same artist?
