Customer Question

I purchased a piece of art because of its beauty but can't seem to make out the artist signature. I would like to know its value. I'll searched so many different names and asked many friends and acquaintances but no luck. I gave it the name because that's
what it look like to me. Can anyone help?

Hi Melody~
Nora here again to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send a photo of the backside of this painting (do not remove from frame).
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

The size is 24x30 and the back of the painting attached.

Thank you for the image of the backside.
I am not able to make a signature match to a known, listed artist.
I can provide an estimate of value based on comparables
I can opt-out and open your question again to all the experts.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

Can you provide the comparables and then re-list the question re: artist signature?
Thank you so much.

Hi Melody,
I can either provide a value based on comparables or opt-out.
Please let me know which you would prefer.
