alva Glidden's paintings
Nancy Olesen (01/19/2015)
Alva lived with my great Aunt Lilian Holmes, for many, many years. They owned a home on Adams Street in Milton until they moved to a smaller home, and eventually to a retirement home for "ladies". She was not related to me but so close that she was referred to a our "great aunt" also. I have many of her paintings, and also had until recently, her box of oil paint. I still have the box but have passed on the paint.Would love to know the value (besides sentimental) of her paintings.

My late mother received a I believe an original oil painting from Alva Glidden. It is signed in the lower left hand corner. It is a painting of 2 deer by a river in winter. It had to have been painted in the late 50's or 60's.I am trying find out if it is a rare painting with original frame. Can anyone help

An oil painting was donated to our non-for-profit sailing school. It is signed in the lower right corner and is a seascape - waves crashing on a brown cliff with inlet in foreground. Seagulls in air and a chick on the cliff face. Donor knows nothing about the painting. It would be most helpful to know more about Alva Glidden and the approximate value of the painting.

And, one of the best art teachers I had during my studies. Called to tell her this after receiving my MFA degree. She was living in Milton, MS. Yes, she was a fine woman -- a great Lady. A Ms. Holmes was my Latin teacher. Would love to hear from you Elayne.
