James Peter Cost
I had the pleasure of meeting this gentleman whilst on holiday in Hawaii. He kindly invited us to join a family birthday party and gave us a print to take home to Scotland. It is of the Hotel at Hana Ranch. It is a signed print. I wonder if anyone can give me more information. Fond memories.

Peter Cost
I was a CA State Senator 1979-1984 along with Senator H. L. Richardson who was a friend of James Peter Cost. Cost had a studio in Carmel and a home that fronted on the Monteray Peninsula Country Club. On several occasions he invited us to play the two beautiful courses.
On one occasion he was complaining about his representative and my off hand
comment was, "Why don't you run for the office?" and thought nothing more of it until he announced that he was going to.
Although I lived in Long Beach I hosted a fund raiser for him and he distributed a signed and numbered 12 X 16 copy of a painting depicting a barn painted with a big sign that says, "Elect Peter Cost to Assembly, Treat yourself to the best." Mine is number 255/1200 and signed James Peter Cost.
It has hung in my home for over 40 years.
He wasn't elected I was told because he refused the advice of the professionals and directed his campaign.
I thoroughly enjoyed him as a friend and love his paintings.
Oliver 'Ollie' Speraw.

I recently aquired these two prints. Print of house/barn with dirt road in forground and treees/ landscape in background is signed and the tree without leavesin forground with two people near dock w/ canoe on left side in background isnt but looks just like a JCP print. Any info on these two pictures would be great. As far as the value, I love the look of Folk art so I will be keeping them. How can I send photos?

Oil Painting Signed by James?
I have an oil painting and the artist name in the lower right hand corner is signed in red as James. Does anyone know who this artist is? Thank you for any help!

Most inquiries are about JPC's prints
Several people have contacted me inquiring about scenes they feel are originals. Some of these are purchased at estate or garage sales. Though the scene you've chosen may be on canvas, it could be a lithograph transfered to canvas. James Peter Cost painted very few originals in his lifetime. For additional information, send digital to my e-mail address.

Angie,
My name is Michael, I am the second cousin of the artis"James Peter Cost" son. Curtis Wilson Cost is one of the most amazing artists in the world and I would say would know enough of his fathers work to assist you in finding out information about it.

Hi, I am looking for any help/info/resources that anyone may know of to find out about a painting that I recently bought. It is signed James Peter Cost, but I can't find out any information about it.
