Hi I dont think its a signature of the artist and thats going to make it very difficult to identify any of the paintings. Take a look at this link and click view more images.

I think those lines are stylized letters (or one stylized letter). It looks most like "Runell", but "Russell" is a very common name and my guess would be that those slashes are the letter "s".

I have the exact same picture! I would love to find out more about the artist.I saw the link on one of the other posts on here about the clown picture which is done by the same person and i was very surprised when i saw how much they had it on sale for.I had no idea that it could be worth this much.mine has the original frame aswell,i can tell that because there is a seal on the back of the frame.i think that now i know who the artist is that i will look into it alot more.

i have painting by the same artist and lby looking by at some of my grandmother photos im thinking it was bought between the late 50's and 60's. The painting is of if someone was taking a picture from off a hill of a town or village off a coast with white buildings with red roofs during sunset. I would like to know more about the artist and if his painting are worth anything. Does anyone know please.
