Hi hope your all having a good weekend.
I need to ID this oil painting ASAP
The painting looks like it's signed by "Thompson" I think but this is the stamp on the frame. I did a google search looking for the shop but don't know if it even is around any more.
Thank you in advance

Dantheman...I honestly don't know if your joking. Can you explain a bit further? I'm a Yank from Flori-duh and never heard of "East Anglian fens"
Thank you

I think you're 100% right! I found an old print online with the old windmill and to the side there is also a stone bridge! How exciting....thank you so much for guiding me in the right direction.
Now if I can ID the artist it would be perfection Happy

Looks to be the work of a keen amateur. There are many local painting clubs in the UK and this artist was probably a members of one of them.

Thanks for your reply.. Interesting area of the UK much like our own swampy Fl. Can you tell me if if the names under John Branch are the names of cities or street names ?

It's his full address, ie:
House name
Street name
Town name
County
Post code (like your Zip code)
Phone number.

You could write him a letter, enclosing a picture of the painting, in the hope he still lives there or they have his forwarding address.
