I got 85, 85 (twice) and 84. I do need a more straight-on picture of the signature

and one photo of the back of the painting so I can look for construction, canvas, labels, etc.

This is a circa 1970's oil painting, unknown artist, of a lakeside landscape

painted in the palette knife technique that was popular

in that era. This piece has a current value of $AUD60 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,,,,, or Ebay.
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
