Hello,

Images of your painting are attached here, however they are very small and the resolution is not high enough to see clear images. Can you please provide larger, more clear, higher resolution images of the front, back and close-up of signature.

Hi Nora,
I appreciate your response, yes it would be easier to speak over the phone. The file (2 items submitted) are in the slideshow format, where you can see the images much larger, you can zoom in as well.
2/1/2016, I paid $48.00 American Express. I submitted 2 items and Tim "opted out" ( he did not have any results) did he get payment for nothing? I don't understand how just answer works......hmmmmm
why may I ask, should I pay an additional amount for a simple phone call?
Thanks for your time. Reply email, ***@******.*** Regards, Sylvia
