Recently, during my visit to a local Salvation Army store, I spotted this painting - the price was $1.00 - really, one dollar.
I could not believe it. The sales clerk even asked me "Are you sure you want to buy this?" I was sure.
It is an original oil on board, 8"x 10" in perfect condition c.w. a beautiful frame. The painting is called "Queen of the Garden"
It signed by Val Fyke - the address indicated on the back of the painting is 2107 - 9 Avenue NW. Calgary, Alberta.
On the back of the painting it states that the artist obtained:
1 + 2 Diplomas Honors RDS London England in 1938- 9. (would anyone know what this is?)
I have not been able to obtain any additional information.
The old house at the address in Calgary is no longer there.
Thanks for looking at this posting. If you have any additional information please share it.
