Fine Art/indentify a painting


I have a painting that Im sure is not worth anything but was curious.  I can not quite make out the name.  It appears to be V. der Vaas or V. der Vaus or V. der Vallo, the last name may even start with a U.  Do you know who it may be?

Dear Brad,

I did some research and was unable to locate an artist by the names you mention. If you would like to email me photos of the entire painting and high resolution photographs of the signature, I will try to decipher it for you. You can email them to

Best regards,

Fine Art
