Customer Question
wide by 4' tall (approx.)...
I'm curious. I have an original Carlos Lopez Ruiz that is 2' wide by 4' tall (approx.) in a gilt frame. It was given to us by a friend. It's of a woman from about the knees up. It is oil on board and appears to be in really great shape. Wonder if it has value.

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
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.
Sincerely,
Nora

Okay, I can send those pictures - I sent one with my original question. The painting is in a second home to which I will be returning Friday 6/19 so I can't take the pictures until probably the 20th I hope I won't incur further charges if I have to wait that long.

Hi,
That is fine - send over images at your convenience.
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.
Sincerely,
Nora
