The Lapa painting is currently on eBay for a "Buy it Now" price of $1000. It is identified as a copy of "The Golden Sunset" by John Keys.

There is a very famous author who was very modest about his skill as a trained commercial artist. His name was Richard Yeo, although he was better known to most as R. S. Yeoman. Attached is a shot of one of his paintings that proudly hangs in my home. It was done while he was in retirement in Arizona sometime around 1986.
