Hello Lee,  It sounds like you have what I call a 'Sofa Painting.'  A painting having a large rectangular shape with a generic subject matter painted in a 'factory' that was sold at furniture stores because it looked good over the the new sofa (chesterfield) being purchased.  If you have one of these it is worth under $100.00.  I suggest you attach an image of the work with your reply.  Cheers, Brent.
