Sounds like the painting may be of his first wife or one of his daughters although he did many adhoc quick portraits of various friends and family. He lived in Hopland and I expect it was done there. you can get a bio about the artist here http://www.calart.com/Data/Artists/Morton_Geer.asp or here http://www.imageexchange.com/artists/morton.shtml
