Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

Thank you Nora the picture is about 19 inches wide by 15 inches tall. The picture is actually in storage right now. I could get a photo of it but it would take a bit of time. I have a copy of the certificate, are you able to open it.

Hi Jenny,
I am able to open the link to the Robert Sills label.
In order to properly assess what you have, I would really need to see images.
It is fine to send over images at your convenience, there is not a time limit here.
If I do not respond immediately, it is because I am not at my computer. Please rest assured that I will attend to your postings as soon as I am signed back in again.
