Evidently, you did pretty well at that shop!  I think you already know about Ella...but here is the bio anyway...

Congratulations on walking away with a pretty nice package.  Great frame.  As you know, not much auction history on this artist, but Skinners Auctions in Boston might find a buyer for you.  The Hannibal, MO connection is fascinating, of course.  It sure looks like Becky, Tom and Huck might have lived in this bucolic little village!

Good luck,

Fine Art
