I was recently gifted this painting and I’m curious about the painter. A friend said the painting indicates it was done in Autumn 1980, but she couldn’t read the painter or buyers name. I would appreciate help with the translation. Thank you!

    @Amanda If you satisfy with the answer, an "up-tick" is better than thousand words.

    Thanks for telling me. I clicked the uptick button and it said it was recorded but that I needed fifteen reputation points for it to display and I don’t have that. I’m sorry if I can’t be more helpful.
