Hello,

I'm trying to figure out who the artist of this painting might have been, as well as any idea of it's value. There is no signature. It is 3 ft by 6 ft on an half an inch thick piece of glass. It has been presumed to be done in oil paint.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

@livglidd,
From the 10ft range it looks well painted. Acrylic?

Kind of looks like a commissioned piece in a community college or city hall/public building, based on local history and geography.

Signiture? Date? Maybe a photo of a back corner stretcher, any notes, tags?

@bobsal u1553115,
I looked, and the photobucket site scared me, and I'm an oldtime photobucket user. A surprise, as I usually look only on my own photobucket, and copy and paste it as needed after resiszing..

The page gave me the creeps and I didn't bother looking at the painting, if that was a painting.

@ossobuco,
The painting seems well done but whole thing seem "static" to me. Its kind of an 80's -90's "civic" style. There are a lot of murals from then that look stylistically like it. Its more a decoration than art to me.

I suspect it was a panel in a wall of painted glass panels. Maybe salvaged from some empty store front.

Value as a decorator panel is something south of a thousand dollars.
