    Looking for the artist of these paintings...

    Tried to find an appropriate forum to post this request, hope this is alright:

    I am looking for the artist of these certain paintings, if anyone could help me out, it'd be much appreciated. I saw them a few years ago and loved them. The art is detailed and pretty, not abstract in any way. I do know the title of the prints:

    "For Love or Country"
    Judging from the dress, the time period looks like it's during the war of independence in the US. In this painting, there is a man in 18th century fighting garb, standing next to a table outside a house. There is a rifle either in his hand, or against the table. On the table is a bag I assume is full of coins - but in the background is a girl on the porch of the house, looking at him. His head is bowed, wondering whether for love or country.

    "Off"
    Again, the clothing in the painting looks like it's during the 1770's. There is a man standing in the middle of a wooden bridge, between two lush fields. I believe there is a stream running under the bridge. He is looking beyond the water with his hands behind his back.
    On the ground next to him (on the bridge) is a bouquet of flowers that has been dropped, and there are many loose petals on the ground. In the distance, beyond the other side of the bridge, we see a girl walking away.

    Thank you for any feedback,
    Prizm

    Thank you for your reply! That seems to be the painting I remember. I forgot to mention that both paintings were done by the same artist. Now I'll just track down all the paintings done by this person and see if "Off" shows up.

    Thanks again,
    Prizm
