JMy copy is just a hair differentennifer, I found my copy of the original painting. It is a copy of Pino Daeni's painting of the kitchen girl titled "Just another day". Someone at Prestige Arts painted my copy. It a little different but I probably paid too much for mine. But I love her anyway. Thanks for all your help...Alice McClendon

See my past questions. Im not sure what you are confused about. What do you need from me?
Antique Expert: AppraiserJM, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 10 months ago

I think I get it now--yours is a repainted copy of an original painting? I was confused, thought you were talking about a different painting.

If it's a copy, it would probably be worth around $500.

Jennifer
