My father, John Nowak, oil on canvas, I painted this portrait from a photo after he passed away around 20 years ago. I just saw it again in my sister Annette's house and it brought back many heartfelt memories.
I just got an online art appraisal of this oil painting that was found by the side of the road in Westfield by my sister who gave it to me. Things people throw away! It is by Cape Cod artist Marilyn Schofield dated 89 or 80. It looks like a Cape Cod winter shore scene. It’s appraisal comes in as $200-$400. My wife Jean loved the painting and we framed it!
