My Craigslist contact came through! I am so excited! I’ve been corresponding with a woman in Dubuque whose father purchased this painting in 1966. He believes it was painted that year. He also told his daughter there was one similar in green that he liked.
This is untitled. It appears to be acrylic. Fortunately the family has a relative who is an art curator so some more information and a good cleaning will be forthcoming. I am indebted to this family…we have reached across the Internet…Dubuque, Iowa and Lewes, Delaware!!! The first of many I hope!
