I have an oval shape painting that was my grandma's. Can't

Customer Question

I have an oval shape painting that was my grandma's. Can't find a signature on it. It's of a lake and mountains in the background . In the foreground there is a canoe on the shore. When I opened up the glass to see if it was a water color, I thought it seemed like it was chalk like . Could you tell me anything about it? Thank you

Thank you for the photos and measurements. This painting was done in the mid to late 1800s It is in excellent condition for the age and the value is $ 325.00-350.00 It looks to be Mount Shasta as seen lake Shastina on the north east side of the mountain. Which, did have many Indians that lived around the lake without knowing for certain I could not say. Very nice piece. I also tried everything to research the name however I have nothing found on Swanson Narenburg. Thank you and if I may be of further help please let me know.
