    I don't think an amateur but perhaps commercial.

    I’ll look closer for signature.
    What do you mean by commercial?

    Decorative. The type of painting that would have been sold in a furniture store to compliment decor.

    This looks a lot like regional paintings done by a good friend of my cousin up in NH. They have both passed away now. He was what I'd call a 'talented amateur' and taught basic painting at a local senior center. I have three paintings of scenery that my cousin painted in his class that are very similar to this.

    I removed the backing paper and there are some writings but hard to read. I’ll see if I can scrape the leftover paper on one of it.

    Hi,
    DON"T scrape the paper. Just use a damp cloth and cover the paper, in a while it should lift right off.

    I wouldn't say it's not New England or someone in NH but just from the scenery it could be many places. Even here in VA;).

    The writing on the back looks to me like from Pediwect? :wideyed:Or maybe not:confused:
