About 15" x 21". She was a pioneer of the genre. Really a West Coast phenomena. I'd be surprised if anyone in Nashville heard of her.Thanks

I have to take a photo of the painting and find the hook up to upload it to my computer. I can't do that right now. I'll have to try to do it tomorrow.

There is no hurry.
I will need to be away from my computer part of tomorrow but I will work on your question as soon as I return home and my library.
