    Looks a good buy

    The two water colours (if not prints) will get your money back and some profit.

    the other will have cost you nothing.

    The last painting on the list will look a lot better if the frame was stripped and waxed. you may get £70 for that on its own in a fair.

    Leave it alone... just a painting

    If you like it and you buy it
    you will end up living with it.

    You will probably die owning it.
