This is the follow-up to my original question of Jan. 12,2012 with the signature close-up.

I was unable to send it before because my original message filled your mailbox.

Thank you again for your time and effort.

Answer
Warren,
I received your pictures separately.  Let me compliment you on a job well done. Not always easy handling art, cameras, photos and the internet.  

I regret to tell you that your picture is not the work of a listed fine artist.  The flowers and vase look to be a commercially executed piece of "decorative art".  

Which is not to say that you might not enjoy your picture, and if you do, I'd encourage you to hang it in a spot where you might see it every day.  

If you enjoy art, I'd further encourage you to visit local museums and art galleries.  Ask questions, never be bashful, and always learn something new.  Art adds much depth to life...I'm glad you appreciate it.

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.
