She suggested putting the picture in a site like photobucket or shutterfly and sending the link. I will look for your reply. Thanks Tim

Thank you for working through the problem of the picture. The artist appears to be as you stated Matt Thomas, who is currently living in The UK. He specializes in seascapes and nautical battle scenes. A painting 30" x 40" without the frame, which is close to the size of yours sold at a Christie's Auction in 2007, sold $1,281.00. The art market has been in a down turn for several years but is starting to post higher numbers again. Yours could bring at auction about the same result or at the right auction more. I hope this has helped you. Thank you Tim
