Oil on canvasboard circa 1960 painting of a variety of flowers in a ceramic yellow vase artistically placed on a textile with another ceramic vessel nearby, signed at lower left "Betty Way". The work, which measures 24" by 18", also bears a label on the reverse with the artist's name and address in Springfield, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. To date I have not located a known artist by this name. A Betty Way of Harrisburg, PA was a newspaper circulation manager. There might well be no relation. The painting is currently in a linen with gold fillet inner frame. I suggest discarding that and reframing. There is some instability of the paint. The two leftmost flowers have losses showing as dark gray areas, and there are a few other losses at upper left, top, and near the vase. Stabilization and Inpainting of these areas should not prove difficult.
