Antonio Candelas (1938-)
He was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, in 1938 and came to the U.S.A. in 1969. His work has been featured in exhibitions at the Mexico City Museum; the Teatro Calderon, Zacatecas; Zacatecas University; San Marcos, Aguascalientes; the Galeries Soriano, Mexico City; Galeries Tolouse, Mexico City; the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, and the University of Texas at El Paso. Over the years he had numerous one-man gallery shows in the U.S.A., in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Boston. Candelas has illustrated numerous books on the customs of Mexico and on the poet Ramon Lopez Velarde.
A painting by this artist would have a current value of $200 to $300 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
