Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

Your 9" x 12" original painting can be attributed to Alice Moren Stolpe (1918 - 2004) who lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin. The notations on the backside are order numbers from the framer; they cannot be traced, nor do they impact value. On today's market, expect to garner a high of $100 - $200 for this. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $300.
