Hello,

Hello,

PLEASE DO NOT RATE THIS UNTIL AN ANSWER HAS BEEN GIVEN. DO NOT RATE, WHEN INFO IS BEING GATHERED.!

Please Note: I am sorry I am unable to do live conversation per phone. There is data that needs to be obtained, this is always best in written form, in order to give a correct, honest appraisal.

It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value!

Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me.

Hi,

My apologies for the delay I was offline for several weeks. The interface has changed and so has the way experts answer customers here. From your description I can tell you that you have a signed print of a watercolor by Russ Smiley. An "Artist Proof" is an initial test run of a print done so the artist can check the draft for any corrections before the print run. One of the signatures on this is done by hand and the other is 'signed in plate' or part of the print. Russ Smiley prints of his watercolor paintings sell for a high average of $50 - $75 on today's market.
