I picked up what i believe to be a Harrison Rucker oil

I picked up what...

I picked up what i believe to be a Harrison Rucker oil painting it measures 20"X 18" and the name of the painting is not on the back. The painting is of a young women partially nude looking out her window with a vase full flowers to her left. Any idea what the title is or what it may be worth.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Should i try to send a photo?

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. Please add images at your convenience by using the +Add File feature next to the SEND button.

I will need to see to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing. The back of a painting tells us just as much as the front sometimes.

Give me time to do some research after you add pictures.
No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I do respond.
