Hi, I have 2 Oil paintings. They're both old. One is a ship. I can't read the signature & the other is quite large 24H by 36 W by Frederic Remington called Smoke Signals, it's Beautiful I hope they might be worth something

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Hi, I sent the pictures twice, I hope you got them. I don’t know what I’m doing WRONG.

Hi,

I received your images, thank you. However the images of the labels and signatures are unfortunately too blurry to discern. Please send more clear, in-focus images of the signatures and labels.

When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
