Can not make out the artist name

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Not sure if this painting is worth anything I also have two other paintings that are different same artist
Expert:  Nora replied 5 months ago.


Please send a clear, in-focus, close-up image of the signature of this artist on all 3 pictures.


Expert:  Nora replied 4 months ago.


These are 'quick sketches' done by an artist to capture the idea of a full painting. The last name in the signature is Richards. The first name in the one photo appears to be Joe. Does the signature on the other pictures look like Joe as well?

Feel free to add photos here at anytime, there is not an additional charge to send pictures here.
