Hi, I sent you a message already and was going to upload another photo of the painting's artist/signature, but was allowed only one pic. So, here is the other. Also, the painting is signed "Blaine" instead of "Baine" which I mentioned in my first message. Sorry for the mistake. Thank you again, and your time and kind consideration is most grateful..........Fred

Answer
Fred,
I have sought some additional expertise.   Jury is back with an answer.  Not the one you want.

Not even "early work".   Nell Blaine just never did anything like this.  Closer examination of the signature in your big pictures, shows it is not hers.  One dealer says he's seen a similar "Blaine" very recently, and politely suggests it is perhaps someone else with the same name.    

C'est la vie.

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
