    Got this at what I consider a bargain today - It's behind glass, the frame is definitely not very old (I'm sure it cost way more to mat and frame this than I forked out) and and I don't think the artwork is either... but perhaps someone here recognizes the signature. One can hope! The frame is 2 inches deep, the mat is 1/4 inch thick I think. The unusual thing is that is inside a wood inner frame which is then inside the metal outer frame, making it quite heavy. The artwork itself is 21 1/2" square. The frame is 28" square.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Agree... someone spent a lot of money on the wrong frame. Doesn't fit this scene at all.

    Funny... Strongly disagree re frame (and matting.) Perfect for piece, perfect for period.

    Not sure, maybe?
    Maybe you can find signed work to compare. This signature is on website, so may be different.

    JMHO, but Impressionistic is not what I would call this, modern yes :)

    I recognize the birds, but what's with the 6, and B, and 0-1, floating about? And I think the frame works very well for that piece.

    Thanks - i was waivering over calling it impressionistic - modern definitely applies.

    Good question - I took all the little flittering thingamabobs in the air to perhaps be insects flying around above the field?

    I agree with everyone that it really appears to be Christine Alfery's work. I've reached out via her website to see if I can get official confirmation. Thanks everyone again for your input, and thanks INH once again for nailing it!
