NY couple seeks Stella W

AOL

#1 May 4, 2008
Hi Folks in Sunny Florida:
My husband and I are retired and love to pick up
interesting pieces of art in the Salvation Army
and thrift shops etc. Our budget is verrrrrrrrrrrrry small!! Recently we found a delightful little water color of a robin on a branch in a faux bamboo frame with the artist's
name beneath the robin: Stella Wielatz 1951. I did a little detective work on the web and found
out that a Stella Wielatz had died in Florida in
1994 and from one of the reference librarians online for Hillsborough county I got a small death notice that said she was an artist. How this little picture of hers ended up in the Hudson Valley I do not know but would love to be
able to get a couple more of her small works. I also found out that she is survived by a son Paul
C. Wielatz in the Brandon Tampa area. If I were a
hutzpa(spelling?) endowed person I would call him
but I do not wish to intrude on someone's privacy so if anyone out there has any information or may remember Stella or know her family maybe this forum can facilitate our wish to get a couple more of her pictures even if they
were but photocopies. And if Paul happens to see this-we adore the little picture that your mother
made-it is on our living room wall right now. Hope this little message to you all bears fruit.

Thanks Lisa M for your comment. You have me further intriqued. Did you buy the painting in Florida or did you find it serendipitously as my husband and I did? Did you know the artist personally?
How big and what medium is your work and did Stella sign and date it?

The Robert Wielatz referenced by Karen, Cathy and I did not have a brother named Charles, but Ross Wielatz may have had a brother or relative named Charles...?

I realize that this is March 2011, but I have a wonderful watercolor of a train that my mother bought for my grandmother. It is signed and dated by Stella Wielatz 1970. I don't want to sell it or get rid of it. Just wanted someone to know that we all love this painting and my 19 year old son has it hanging in his bedroom!
Thanks!

I found Stella Wielatz painting in Tampa at a Thrift Store on Nebraska Ave. I often visit Tampa to visit family, I now live in Washington DC. I acquire this painting back in the late 80's. I had hang it up in my cubicle at the Dept of Labor. The painting is on a block of wood. I bought it because it remind me of my home town. The scene is of two people resting on trees. Trees that seem to be frail with moss. Since retired, I now have it hanging in my bedroom.

We have a wonderful picture of a boat in a harbor. God bless this woman as her memory lives on forever in her art.
