What does this mean?

Hi David,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Hutchinson's paintings tend to bring slightly higher prices when sold in Scottish auctions, which would suggest he has a strong local following. In a comparison of works sold, his expansive exterior scenes (I would call this an intimate exterior scene) seem to be the most highly valued, though the presence of young children in your painting will be appealing on the marketplace.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Hello Delia,
The material is canvas behind glass in a wooden frame.
I’m hesitant to remove the frame and glass.
