Is there a way to have another artist recreate it cheaply? I doubt the (oil?) painting is worth more than $30—probably only $10. No one knows where it originally came from so I can't just buy another one—I think it was a garage sale find from before my husband was born.
I doubt this makes a difference, but just in case: It's painted on a rather large, framed piece of black velvet, but the recreation wouldn't have to be on velvet. It's the image they like, not the medium. I thought about scanning it and making it into a print, but the relief caused but the texture of the paint (plus its size) would make that rather difficult.
Also, I live in a Chicago north-west suburb, but the painting lives with the in-laws in middle-of-no-where north-east Indiana.
