“Earl I. Daniels, California painter of landscapes, seascapes, coastal scenes and still- lives, was born in New York City where he worked both as a commercial artist and jazz musician.
In the early 1940’s he settled in Laguna Beach, California. It was here that he was very active as a painter of landscapes and seascapes. He spent many years teaching and lecturing the surrounding art community. He was a well known, and respected member of the Laguna Beach art community.
Daniels’ works have been exhibited nationally, and throughout California. In 1963 the late President Kennedy and Mrs. Kennedy commissioned him to paint a piece for their personal collection.” (via askArt)
This Daniels original artwork was obtained directly from a Pomona, California business. Originally, the owner’s grandfather obtained this piece from Earl Daniels because he worked on his car between 1971-73. So instead of payment, Daniels gave him this original oil painting (30×38). It features rare portrait art from this artist and showcases the late great boxer Muhammad Ali in full fight mode. It was a prized item displayed in their workshop. The owner’s grandmother then left this art to him. Indeed, a rare portrait from a great artist.
