Fine Art/identify my print and value


I have an old print my mom had for years. I want to know if it is worth anything before I get rid of it. It has the signature of Thompson and underneath it in very small print it says made in the USA. It is in a blue rectangular frame with squared corners. It has a cabin on the right with a dirt road in front, birch trees on left with some water in front of them. It is a night picture with a moon and some clouds. The picture hangs vertical. Thank you very much for any help you can give me.


Possibly by WW Thompson. Based on what you are telling me though it seems that this piece is a reproduction piece due t the fact that it says"Made in the USA".You wouldn't find that copyright info usually on an original print. only on a copied or reproduction print.
