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.
There may be an +Add Files button or 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

Hi,
I received one image of the back side of your painting.
In order to assess what you have, I will need to also see a complete image of the artwork from the front, 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.
Please send those at your convenience.
Thank you,
Nora

MY picture files are too large to send in my email. The add files button will not open. If I could find the Reply to Expert button,
I have directions to use the paperclip you mentioned.
