My painting is an original....

I took your advice and contacted an art professor. Just got off the phone, he told me my painting is an orginal. He confirmed it's a water color, from the pictures I sent him. He told me the value of the painting (without the frame) is between 5,000 and 7,000.

Thanks for the suggestion of contacting an art department.

nice to know isn't it..

Congrats, ilene-84! It's a pretty piece. Can you believe someone threw it out in 1923?!

Must say, I'm somewhat surprised that an art professor can tell an original watercolor from a picture (probably in an email)and also put a value on it from a picture.

Good for you if, in fact, that is true.
