In 1965 I was...

In 1965 I was stationed at Fairchild A.F.B. & I bought t painting from a soldier who was in the same Barracks as me. The painting is oil on canvas & modern art I guess It’s about 4 feet x 4 feet & his name is***** was curious if this man ever did good

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?

I would send some pictures if I knew how. I do know that the airman was about 19 or 20 & he was an aircraft mechanic
