Fine Art/Oil on canvas painting


Hi I have this painting that my parents gave me when I moved out. It is pretty old due but Im not sure how old. The signature at the bottom of the piece is hard to make out but it looks like Wadsworth or something similar. I cant make out the first name. Any information you have would be amazingly helpful. Thank you!

Pretty picture. Here's a longshot, but take a look at Adelaide E. Wadsworth (1844-1928.)  Try her name on a "Google Images" search and take a look at the boats in the harbor she has painted.  Very similar composition to what you show here.  This picture sold at public auction twice (2007 & 2008) for about $200.  Hope that is helpful info. Best of luck.
