I have a beach scene oil painting which I acquired in 1976 that is signed in the lower right hand side K. Harriso (what it appears to be)- anybody know about this artist?

Has anyone identified R. Styles? Have an oil (3'x3') of either "sailing" or "fishing" ships, black (w/touches of red, green, and brown) on a white background.
Have thought, many times, of turning this into a "blank" canvas to let the children create whatever they want. Would this be a "bad idea?" I have NO concept of ART or its value (I just "like what I like!").
Appreciate any thoughts...

Anyone ever heard of an artist named Tzsn... or it could be Tzrn.... the paintings are a solid color background with thick black acrylic paint on top (the black paint sort of comes up off the canvas.)

Hi, I also have a beautiful approx 37x37 oil paiting signed R.Styles right hand corner. Represents the view of a city at night (I am not sure which one) from across the bay or river, it is black, gold and dark orange. Have you found any pieces of information about this artist? Would you like to exchange the photos of the paitings ?
It sounds like we have the same painting or something similar did you ever find out about the artist or where the paintings originated from.

I just bought a nice R. Styles painting that I was going to paint over. It's 37" x 37" and sounds very much like Wm West's in Valley Cottage, NY. Im in Orchard Park, NY. It's a very bright yellow with flowers in the forfront (pink, white and green) and a small pair of people holding hands walking towards the sunset and surf. I bought it for 5$ because it was on canvass and hand a nice frame. STill does any one know of this R. Styles????
