I have an oil painting that was given to me as a gift over forty years ago. , It is entitled "David & Goliath". In the bottom right hand corner it say "I Houle Sketch By RC" and it has an anchor symbol. The painting itself is a large sailboat being pulled by a tug boat. Can you tell me anything about the value of this painting?

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the framing.

I am unable to find a match for this signature (though it looks to be that of a cartoonist by trade). I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.
They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!
