Mystery painting by COLE?

Sometimes I feel like pulling my hair out and today would be a good example. I was browsing through my favorite thrift store (Goodwill – Las Vegas), looking for small treasures for still life paintings and some used frames that would have some good life left in them. And I ran across this … 

I loved it as soon as I saw it and had to have it.  Where does the hair pulling part come in?  It comes from wondering who painted it.  It is signed “COLE” in the bottom right of the painting.  That’s all.  Nothing on the back.  Nothing on the edges of the canvas.  Nothing.

 So, you would think in this day and time that finding out about this artist with Google would work.  Not a chance.  Do you know how many artists there are with the name Cole on the internet?  Could it be a Thomas Cole?  That would be nice, but no, this isn’t the way he signed his paintings. 

I searched through about one hundred different artist websites and pages looking for this Cole and didn’t find anything that would say I had found my artist.

So, I have a really nice landscape painting by Cole.  That’s all I know.  If you happen to know any more than this I would love to hear from you.
