Elver Barker (1920 to 2004) was active/lived in Colorado and Wyoming and is known for tree landscapes and floral finger painting. Most paintings were done from the 1960s- 1980s. He also wrote a book in 1968 titled Finger Painting in Oils. There have been a few pieces that sold recently with price estimates of 750 to 1000.00. Right now, there is not a lot of his work out there for sale. Your piece is likely another tree landscape done in oils like these others, so I would value the piece at 800 to 1000.00.
