Mystery art

I picked up a large piece of art while in Santa Barbara this weekend. I don't know if I'll come to love it, but the price was right. (Free!) It's a large piece, framed with good workmanship and a Delphine Gallery sticker on the back. It looks like it's made with torn paper and ink, with perhaps some light water damage or just age-related deterioration.


The artist's name is written in pencil, but it's such a scrawl that I have a hard time reading it. That looks like an "R".


I'd contact Delphine Gallery through their web site, but it's been taken over by domain squatters. Then again, maybe they just framed it, but don't represent the artist.
