Customer Question

I have a framed 24 by 18 oil painting by E.L Boone. It depicts a miner on his face drinking from a desert watering hole, with his mule looking on. I'm wondering about its worth and dealers that would be interested.

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Not sure why they didn't go through, also I sent the size and pics in the original request. Maybe, it is the system. I will try again.

Thank you for the images.

Sorry, I am having such a hard time with these images, the tree should not be in there. The other image is the label on the back, where the paper is starting to come off. I don't know why the program is only randomly sending the images.
