16x20 original painting I have inherited a painting from my grandmother and I am trying to find more information about its value. It appears to have notes and a signature from the artist. Can you provide any direction on how I would go about learning more? 1971 Adee Dodge looks like it has a #7 written on it as well.
Painted for my gransparents by the Artist in 1971
