Fine Art/moran oil painting



Hi I have an oil painting by a Moran. I've tried to research the painting but I can't find an image online. I'm not sure how old it is. It was in my wife's storage and was given  to me. Can you tell me if it's wort anything and how old it is. Thank you

This is not worth your time to investigate further.  This is an old piece of hastily manufactured "tourist trap" or "decorator" art.  See if you can get a few dollars in a rummage sale? Paint your own masterpiece right over it?  Creatively use the frame?
