The piece you bought of a woman with crown, surrounded by flowers is probably by Katherine Page Porter, the California artist. The California KPP did a series of angels in the 1970s, some crowned.

I recently purchased a piece of framed art with the signature, Katherine Page Porter. I found this piece at the Salvation Army, and not knowing anything about the artist, brought it home anyway as I just loved the colors she used. The piece is of a woman, perhaps watercolor, wearing a crown, there are flowers surrounding her. Any thoughts?

They are not cheap, and depend on the size and year. 15X15 piece will cost around $5000.00 I met her last two years ago at Vermont Studio Center. She is very nice lady.
She wrote recommendation letter for my MFA program that I wanted to applying to.
