Hi,

I did but only the frame is in focus. Could you try to get a more in focus photo of the painting.

Thanks,

I had some better pictures taken by my phone and hoping this time I am able to get them to you. A picture of miniature oil on canvas or possibly acrylic painting of snow scene with old barn by Ma. Thanks Janet

Hi Janet,

I can't find a match for this artist. I will open this question up to other experts for their opinion.

Thanks,

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This appears to be a mid-20th century painting by a smaller local artist, or perhaps a talented amateur. It is not by a "listed" or known artist."

It's a very attractive painting, but given the small size and the unknown artist, the value would be no more than $75.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
