Here are some images of the work of Oscar Erickson:

From a great website called Michael Fitzsimmons Decorative Art:

Oscar Erickson was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He studied painting and printmaking at the Milwaukee Art League and later at the Art Institute of Chicago. He also attended the Woodstock, NY summer school for artists, a popular artists’ colony at the turn of the century, where he apprenticed under John F Carlson. He was an active member of the Palette & Chisel Club in Chicago as well as the Hoosier Salon in Brown County, Indiana. His work is characterized by a rich, jewel-like color palette and a remarkable ability to capture the effects of light and air on the landscape.
