"up channel with a fair wind"
I have a picture in an old frame with glass bubbles in it. Seems it's an old Indian ink painting of a sailboat in a channel of water. It has the inscription "F R London" in the bottom right hand corner. Any idea of it's worth? The back has old newspapers for some kind of backing dating back to July 12, 1912 with some old what looks like pieces of cedar shakes holding it all in place. I see that other people have the same picture. Thanks
Artist Douglass Graham is mentioned in the November 20, 1947 edition of the Laguna News Post. A Mountain Stream is Born by Ethel Sheldon
Of course, Coast Royal is a pleasantly rolling place; but one would scarcely expect to find there a mountain streamlet, delighting the ear and the eye during the dry season. But that is just what one finds who visits the picturesque grounds of Douglass Graham on West Street.
He has converted what was an unsightly mud hole in wet weather into a winding stream 75 feet long, banked with softly tined rocks from San Juan creek and fed by a tiny tributary, which pours over blue basins. This is beneficently watched over by a Jean Poyer St. Francis, replenishes water lost by evaporation; the actual stream, cascades and all, is supplied by the water it has already poured into a small reservoir, whence it is pumped back to begin its journey all over again.
The little pump is concealed in a dog kennel hidden by foliage. A bridge across the stream could easily accommodate two or three persons at once. Artist Graham is a clever landscape designer, although his fame rests on his portrait painting."

I have found an old looking picture of a shepherd walking his sheep towards his farm. A pond is to his left and the sea is in the distance. We have just moved into an old cottage and thought it would look lovely on a wall. Any information will be greatly appreciated. James McKinlay.

douglas earl graham 1879-1954
I bought 2 copies [I assume] of Douglas Graham paintings in Okehampton, Devon, U.K. in 1967.One shows deer by a stream in a bluebell wood, the other shows a group of sheep by a pond bounded by clusters of scots pine or larch. They are scenes very typical of what I remember from my early life in Devon [I'll be 94 within a month]. In particular the scene of the deer in the wood is very similar to the scenery which can be found in areas such as Exmoor or Dartmoor in S.W.England.I wouldn't part with these paintings for any price!

Have just acquired watercolour (? - definitely not print)of Australian scene (eucalypt trees, horse & cart, landscape etc)signed lower left Douglas Graham in black. Typical period landscape scene from 1920's (which fits in)So he may have been in Australia at this time.Frame is large American Oak wood with leaves, nuts etc applied to outer layer of frame.No title.
Info on this artist seems not much, also a few copies from are around, mine from UK now in Australia, are they worth insuring!!! or not. It seems that Douglas Graham may never have left California, so where did the Scottish paintings appear from?
Love to know more as enjoy the pics
Well, hello Phil Rogers. I have 'Salmon Stream near Killin.', copyright 1051. Have you learned anything about this artist? This piece has been in my family for many years.
I have the same signed Douglas Graham with the long haired cattle. Bought in Indiana around 1992. The shop said it was clled the "The Edge of Loch Awe" but I haven't been able to confirm.

Around 1981, I aquired a old charcoal of long haired scottish cows in a landscape of trees and river. Frame is old 22x34 with leaded glass, picture is 14x24, and signed by Douglas Graham. Bought at flea market in Nevada.
