My cousin gave me an awesome original Graves black panther lurking on a branch....

I am going to obtain another Graves original, a funky but beautiful circus big-top scene with a clown and a zebra....

I am looking for more works by Graves.....

I have two Shirrell Graves paintings or prints that are of a panther in a jungle setting and a zebra.They came from an Aunt's estate in California. Does anyone know what the worth of these paintings or prints are or to whom to contact to see if they are paintings or prints? I live in Arizona.

I have just inherited a watercolor of a black panther lying on a branch watching a colorful macaw. It is signed in pencil and numbered "1". I remember this painting as part of my childhood and now that I own it would like more information. Please.
