Sherrill Graves originals
Allison Hatcher (08/28/2011)
I also own two pair of Graves originals, magnolias on a dark background and hibiscus on a light background. I've seen S. Graves paintings for sale anywhere from $!00 for a very nice pair of hibiscus on a light blue background to a single bowl of yellow flowers for $1,350. No idea why the value fluctuates so much. I bought both of mine for cheap -- under $30 per pair -- at garage sale/flea market. I spoke to a man at the Alameda Flea Market (who was selling a large pair of Graves' florals in Green & Red for $250) and all he knew was that Mr. Graves was a prolific San Francisco artist who worked mainly in airbrush.

I just found two pink flamingo water colors done by Shirrell Graves in my Mom's attic...they are good size and I wonder what they may be worth...excellent storage for over thirty years...

Have a painting by Shirrel Graves signed
Beverly Koball (02/14/2010)
I have a Shirrel Graves painting of a large magnolia. On the back it has 20 x 24 Graves #553. There is a silver sticker on the back that says by Parmelee San Francisco. There appears to be several buds coming from behind the large leaves. It looks like it was air-brushed? Signature in pencil with small "c" circled. Would like information on it.

Shirrell Graves panther
joy Buettgenbach (11/23/2008)
Black Panther approaching signed in the left-hand corner looks like a "c" with a circle around it. I have had very little success in discovering anything about this artist or piece.

Golden pheasant
Paula (04/04/2007)
I have a watercolor of magnolias and a golden pheasant that I bought about 23 years ago. Can anyone tell me about this painting. It is about 24+36, in the org. frame. Signed SHERRILL GRAVES

Pink Flamingo
Susy K. (02/28/2007)
Shelly Bassett & Edward Lozzie inquired about a Pink Flamingo painting by Shirrell Watson Graves - I have the same picture. Any information on this painting - age and value - would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Pink and Purple Magnolias
Vleebon (02/19/2007)
Pink and Purple Magnolias I have a pair of signed paintings (pink and purple magnolias). They have a "Created by Parmelee San Francisco" sticker on the back. Also, there is a #1581 and #1582 on the back. I don't think these are prints as it looks as though they are signed in pencil under glass. They are framed in green an cream frames.. Can anyone help me out with these? Please feel free to email me with informtion to help my research or with info about when, how much, etc?

Pink Flamingo
Shelly Bassett (01/06/2007)
On 7/26/2006 Edward Lozzi asks about a pink flamingo. I have the same picture. I have not had it to a professional framer to check it out. I'm like him, I'd like some info on it.

Clown and zebra Shirrell Graves
brooke brooks (04/10/2006)
I have a picture of a Clown with kind of a satire look to him with a zebra in a big top. Signed Shirrell Graves in pencil. If anyone knows a rough est. of time which this might be from or further information please contact me.

shirell graves panthers
steve westhafer (03/19/2006)
Cindy: I am sorry I can't give you a value but I have two Graves panthers, both signed in pencil but not numbered. One was bought about 1946 by my mother and the other about 1947 from a Sherwin-Williams paint store in Dallas, Tx. One has the panther crouching among bamboo with a cluster of orange fruit above and what appear to be banana tree leaves and the other shows him standing on a fallen limb with bamboo and banana tree leaves and the cluster of orange fruit. They are framed in imitation bamboo frames and I have just had them re matted and put under UV safe glass. They are among my most treasured possessions! Steve
