Need help identifying artists

Over the past 10-20 years, I picked up a few original oil paintings at yard sales that I fell in love with and they have been on my wall ever since. I would love to know who the painters are, and if possible what the insurance value is. I don't really think any of them are really worth anything but I am just curious. Thanks for any help!!

@dis0wned,
I think one of them is definitely Ronald Cooper.

@Lordyaswas,
LOL! Touché

With that said, from the poking around that I did, I couldn't figure out which Ronald cooper it was (there were several that I found).

@dis0wned,
To resize photos on to go on the website, first see if the site you're taking them from has mention the size they are showing it at.

A good size for showing is something like 500 x 800 or, 800 x 500 (or similar maybe somewhat lower numbers)

The way to do it is this:

http://imageurl


Always put width first, no space between h=5 and so on.

I've found that if sizes are up around a thousand or above they load badly on the page.

@dis0wned,
It would be a big help if you could size the photos and post the entire picture so people can do an image search.

@jcboy,
Sorry, I had no idea. Are you able to see the whole pic? I didn't see an issue

@dis0wned,
You (we) need to test what it looks like by clicking on preview before you press reply with a photo.

I think my link should still work from the a2k blog on how to size photos.

The bit that didn't show up - I'll try that again in another post.

@ossobuco,
My link, the one in blue towards the bottom of my post, does work. My comment that didn't show up was my attempt to copy that blog post to show you, but you can just click on it and see.

Let's say you use the numbers 500 and 800; if the width is lengthier than the height, then you put the width as 800 and the height at 500. But follow the spacing in the a2k blog link, and put your photo url in between, as the example shows. Photo urls usually end in jpg

@ossobuco,
I uploaded from a cell phone and everything appears fine when I look at it. I will have to resize from a pc

@dis0wned,
Oh, good. (I'm a cell phone idiot, and learned some of this uploading business the hard way.)
