Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
Please let me know the following:
Is the artist name Delmary?
What are the dimensions of the painting not including the frame?
What is the medium - oil, watercolor on board or paper or canvas?
Kind regards,
Doris

Yes the artist's name is***** dimensions are 36" across and 24" top to bottom. I'm pretty sure it's oil on canvas
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.
I am going to need a photo of your painting and a photo of the artist's signature.
These are two ways to send me photos:
You can use a free internet photo website named www.imgur.com
OR
You can use the paper clip icon at the top of your "reply" box to
insert your photos directly into your "reply" box.
An explanation of this method can be found here -

Sometimes there is no paper clip but there is an attachment link in your "reply"
box. You may use this to send photos as well.
I look forward to seeing your photos.
Kind regards,
Doris

Based on your years of experience, does this Delmary painting have the potential (you're not commiting to anything) of being valuable?
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.
I cannot say without the photos. They are necessary for an accurate assessment.
Kind regards,
Doris

There is no hurry.
