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.

I will answer without pictures since I am familiar with this artist.

***** *****g (20th century)

is a listed artist from the United States and China

known for harbor view, landscape, and portrait painting.

This portrait painting from the 1950's has a value of

$400 based on recent sales of ***** *****g's similar work.

Some other sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
