QUESTION: I havent got an answer back
Answer Dear Patricia,
I hope you are doing well. I am sorry to hear you have not been answered. I reviewed my email and I am afraid I never received an email from you with images of your painting. Could you please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and put your name and "art identification" in the subject line. I will email you when I get the photos.
I can assist with identification, acquisition, sell representation, and care of fine art prints and original paintings. Some of my artist specialties include Henri Toulouse Lautrec, California Artists, and the Modern Masters. I can also assist with information on getting professional appraisals and authentication.
