What does this mean?

Dear Kirk,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry again.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil or acrylic paint on canvas with the measurements of 67 x 26 inches. The painting depicts an abstract composition of square form in yellow, orange, and green. The painting was made on two separate canvases and appears to be signed with the name R. Cook. The motif and signature and not comparable with listed or known artists. This piece was probably made in the late 20th century. This piece could be made under a nom de plume by a Chinese artist. China exports the since the 1970s paintings in Western-style in various quality to the Western counties.
Works by this artist were recently not offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 30 to 60 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
