My research of retail art gallery prices for paintings similar in size and subject matter - landscapes - and by Verna Hubley indicate that your painting would be priced at the retail value range of $660-800.
Congratulations on smart shopping!
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.

Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.
Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.
