At your convenience, please also provide a full view of the painting from front and back (do not remove from frame) as well as the dimensions. There is not an additional charge to send more pictures here; one with the signature close-up is attached, more from different angles will be very helpful. However, please note that not all signed works are by known, listed artists.

The art work is approximately 30 inches in width X 24 inches in height. It is acyrlic on canvas, with no actual frame. If you look above and slightly to the left of the artist 1st. letter of his name, (I believe it is an 'E') you will notice what I think is three letters and a 'K'.
For what it is worth, I am a 1st time, skeptical, customer. However, if this turns out to be a positive experience for me, I have several other pieces of art which I wish to know more about. All have artist signatures which I can not decipher.
Though this tidbit of info has nothing to do with my question, the price tag asking price was $2800, reduced to $1700.

I am not able to decipher the signature on this for you.

I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.
