Thank you for the information.

I have looked through paintings of at least 25 20th/21stC artists with the name MacMillan.

I was unable to match any of their styles with that of your abstract painting.

I can value your painting as being by an unknown artist or I can open up your question to the other Just Answer pros.

Let me know.

Kind regards,
