My husband and I recently inherited a charcoal portrait from his mother. She unfortunately has lost most of her memory and can't help us with identifying it. There signiture on it but neither of us can figure out the first name. We believe the last name is Red. Any help that any one could provide would be greatly appreciated. We want to know about the artist and where it came from!

@Clarkbar78,
Been looking, no luck so far. The signature doesn't look like the last name of "Red"

@ossobucotemp,
I found similar charcoal drawings by a Gareth Reid. But if that is an old drawing it couldn't be the right artist. He's probably in his 50's??

@jcboy,
I see now that the first name could be Gareth - a well worked out signature.
My paintings over a lot of years just have JC snuck in somewhere in the bottom of the painting.
