I have a canvas oil painting of a seascape by H. Gailey. Is it worth anything?

You'd have to get that evaluated by a gallery.

I have an oil painting that I inherited from my father and it took me years to finally find an honest value.

Honest is the problem. I got a plate appraised. The guy said he'd give me $50 dollars for it. I'd heard not to sell to the appraiser. It was worth $200. Glad I didn't sell!

I had the same crap happen to me regarding the painting. I emailed Antiques Roadshow and they told me to get it appraised at a display gallery, not a gallery that buys paintings.
