Hi Yvonne, Hurray, don't you love computers.

I have seen these paintings signed with either a L. or a K. Cummings the artists specializes in seascapes with lighthouses and seagulls. Oddly most of them are off the stretchers and unframed. They are fairly contemporary, painted circa 1970, in pastel colors with lots of impasto (the process or technique of laying on paint or pigment thickly so that it stands out from a surface) brush work. They unfortunately sell for £ 15 to £ 30 each

Cheers Tim
