Hi Mike, I should hear a decision on your Melrose today. At this point it looks 50/50 to me. As I expected my client is complaining about the cost of restoration.
If you can, send me images of the other painting you mentioned. You can attach jpgs to an email to me at An image of the front, the back, and close-ups of the signature and any inscriptions or labels. Make your subject line "allexperts" so I do not bounce you as spam.
I really don't do prints, but you can send me images of the two you have...maybe I'll have an idea.
