      Greetings,

      I have what I believe is the original of this quail signed by Al Hesselberg. It has a pair painting of a female quail that I have together. They seem to me to be watercolors, but I am not certain.

        We own two paintings by Al Hesselberg, one the original in the posted print and its twin of a female quail. They seem to be watercolors to me. My wife's grandmother purchased them in New Mexico and we inherited them last year when her mother died.

          I have a Al Nesselberg drawing of the road runner about 20 inches long, and 12 inches tall. Signed Al Nesselberg, and dated 1963. Found behind an old dresser. Not sure if its a print. Can anyone tell me how to tell if its original or not?

            I have a water color of horses by this artist bought in Tucson years ago. Very nice watercolor of a mare & colt.

              I found a print of the road runner that Mr. Willis has. Found it at a thrift store for 6.99. I am thrilled with it. The roadrunner has always been my favorite bird.
