sorry your having trouble seeing the signature it actually says w. smith found some examples of signature online just lost my information on painting from appraisal
Expert:  Tim in Appraisals replied 9 months ago.

I have tried to find a match for your artist W. Smith checking for any artist with the first initial W. and the last name Smith. The are quite a few. So far I can not find a match. Because of that it is unlikely the value of the painting has appreciated since the last appraisal.
