Hi I have a oil painting on a hard wood, the size is 18.5*24cm. I got it from a thrift store. I think the artist is imitating another painting, could be a famous one, but I am not sure. Any information on the painting would be appreciated, thanks!
The image is on my google+ through the following link:

@wei,
I'd say it was painted in the style of the "Dutch School" and could be imitating any number of painters.

@wei,
I believe your painting is very similar to a work called Up To No Good by Donatus Buongiorno (1865 - 1935). He signed his paintings D. Buongiorno or B. Donatus.
The Buongiorno painting was sold at auction in 2009

From Italy, Donatus Buongiorno became a muralist, painter and teacher who studied at the Roil institute of Fine Art in Naples and emigrated to Boston, where he was active as a muralist before moving to San Francisco in the 1920s. In 1911, he exhibited his work at the Pennsylvania Academy.

In Boston, his work is at the Church of St. Leonard of the Franciscan Fathers, the Church of the Sacred heart, and the Church of St. Peter. In Brattleboro, Vermont, a mural by him is in the Church of St. Michael.

Donatus Buongiorno died near Naples, Italy on October 25, 1935.

@firefly,
Hi firefly,

My question is same.....Is your painting signed? It is very important for a painting. If the well known artist signature available on painting board it means that painting is original and we can trust on that painting.

@JimLyle,
Wake up!


That isn't firefly's painting. She was trying to help.

You seem to be instructing her as if she is a dumb ox. Very funny.
