Here is a photo of his signature there may be slight changes however the overall signature should be close on yours if not almost exact. His signature rarely changed I have reviewed 11 of his signatures all similar.

Ok, I have a few paintings that have sold in the last 4 years at auction. They are 20" x 26" Prices ranged from $100.00 to 325.00 It seems snowscape paintings were on the higher end of value 200.00 to 325.00 and the landscapes between 100-250.00.

You did say you were interested in selling your painting. Here I have listed some of the auction houses that sold his paintings in the last few years. They would have a client base of who collects his works of art and may be able to help you in getting the most value for your painting.
