Apologies for the late reply... your messages went to my junk folder, so didn't see them til' now. Attached is image of one. They're all variations on the same scene... more or less. 9 1/2" x 8" canvas.

Sorry, there's actually two (of the four) different paintings there...

Hi,

This is by a very prolific decorative artist. These are sold at furniture stores and by decorators. These are selling for $100-150 each. Here is a link to a painting by Stone on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/K-STONE-BEAUTIFUL-LANDSCAPE-PAINTING-VINTAGE-GREAT-FRAME-SIGNED-/262249725211?hash=item3d0f4d3d1b:g:c5cAAOSw~gRVlKLI

This one is a fall scene vs the Alps in yours. Note the treatment of the water.

Thanks,

Wayne

Do you know anything about the artist? Full name, where they're from, or based...? How old?
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

No detailed info is available on this artist. Painting style is 1960s to present. I was able to find several paintings by this artist and provided accurate market value.

Thank you,

Wayne
