Second opinion] I have two oil paintings, signed by a D. Hunter. There is no writing on the back. How can I find out if they are worth anything?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Wish I could upload a picture of the painting on here. I have asked a friend who is somewhat knowledgeable and only thing I found was the signature is similar to a Canadian artist.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the art,
signatures if any and back of completed framing for any writing or labels.
