    Do you have any history on the piece - perhaps where or when you got it? Are there any marks or stickers or other information on the frame, or the back side of the piece?

    Sorry to say, but I am unable to read it either.....
    Sometimes you can use a mirror and recognize the letters in reverse. Sounds crazy but worth a try. Also using a backlight will help read a signature.
    Good luck!

    I think you'll find that even if you could read the signature the odds of finding out much might be slim. Paintings like this tend to Decorator pieces sold by traveling "Starving Artist" shows in Hotel conference centers. The paintings themselves are bought wholesale from largely unknown Artists who paint them to order in multiples of the same theme for the Wholesaler.
