Fine Art/Cityscape Abstract Painting

Question
Hello Dolly, I hope you had a restful Holiday Weekend! I obtained a painting by Eugene Daymude over the weekend a listed artist. I also have another painting that I wanted to ask you about. It is an Abstract Cityscape Oil on Canvas, it is quite large but it is framed in a cheezy 70's frame. I can not figure out the aritist, I am not sure this is anything, it appears to be from the 1960s.  Here are the link to the photos:

Thanks so much again!  

Answer
Hello Jim,

I had a very nice weekend, thank you. I reviewed the photos of your cityscape and I do not recognize the artist signature or style. The city appears to be Hong Kong, but I am not certain of this. Offhand I would say it is a nice, colorful decorative piece and probably done in the sixties/seventies by an Asian artist. Something in the style leads me to this conclusion. The perspective is off and you know how I feel about that!

Just my opinion; (you may want to get a second one), but I think it is more decorative than fine art.  

I hope all is well with you.

Best regards,
Dolly
