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.
I probably will not be able to tell you where the lighthouse is located; but, with a little more information, I can value your painting.
If you would like for me to proceed, please tell me the sight dimensions of your painting, not including the frame.
It also would be best to have a photo of your painting.
To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.
Pearl Kelley Ropke (1921-2014) was born in Pensacola, FL. For the most part, she painted around Georgia and the Carolinas which is probably where the scene of your painting was located.
My research indicates that your Pearl Ropke oil painting has a retail art gallery value of $2200-2400 assuming good condition.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
