Looks like it might say, 'Moran' or 'Loran' or something? It drives me nuts when artists sign illegibly. Anyway, I usually have to resort to analyzing the image and the framing for clues even if I 'can' read the signature...that is, if a readable name search hits a dead end.

I remember seeing these around, I think in the 1970s. However, I suspect that they were factory produced and the signature was illegible to make it appear to be by an individual artist.

It does have a period charm and, I could be wrong. However, if they were by an individual artist, I imagine that someone would have been written an article in the past and I am not aware of one.

It looks to me like a street caricaturist's upcharged work. Stay with me, here.
A golf widow is wandering the retirement vacation town alone, because her husband's golf buddy has shown up to celebrate with them. Caricaturist adds lots of very specific detail: clown ID, extra colors, flies around their heads, half a bottle of liquor easily accessed from the top of the bag. Lots of angry insults for the subjects, plus maybe she paid the artist 5000% of their fee. Anyway, the signature might be L O Rifa-- or what studio-pots said, which is probably the solution after you apply Occam's razor to it. But I like my story better.
Thoughts?
