Need Help identifying an Artist

My Dad has had this painting for as long as I can remember, but his memory is going, so he cannot tell me anything about it. I'm trying to identify the artist. If anyone can assist, we would be very grateful.

Wow, if that doesn't just scream the influence of Dorothy Dunn and the Studio School style.

The style and subject matter looks a lot like Woody Big Bow's work. But the signature is somewhat different than those on the few pieces of his work I've seen. Some artists change their signature as their work matures.

OLC you are awesome!

Click this link, scroll down to Woody's signature...it appears more "artistic" than earlier examples. This is Woody Big Bow's work.

I agree...pretty sure it's Woody Big Bow. It is similar to this one and others I have found.

I asked elsewhere, and found out there are "two" Big Bow artists. Woody and Larry. Someone else thinks this work is by Larry. I have no idea really.

Wow, at least you have it narrowed down a lot! It could have been a needle in a haystack, but thanks to OLC, the rest should be easy!
