One Man's Trash...

Recently, I was thinking about all the thrift store, junk store, side-of-the-road-pick-up art that I have accumulated. I love each and every piece, and have found some funny and wonderful items over the years. Maybe when we have a house I'll do a big grouping of everything? I'm not sure, but I know one thing - it's unique and I plan to hold onto all of it for forever (and add on to my collection). 

I have this piece that is in the left shelf at the top. It's someone's rendering of a still life, in oil, but unfinished. It looks very old, as the canvas is beaten up and threadbare at the sides, but I love it that way, and I always have left it unframed.

The green is amazing, huh? 

This "Girl with A Horse" print is another good find. It's hard to see in this picture, but it's a cool one:

(this is from when we FIRST moved in the condo! Before my sofa was reupholstered)

These cat and dog painting prints are maybe my favorites:

The dog one currently stares at you in the bathroom, next to the toilet at the studio. :)

OK... that's all for now. So much fun collecting weird and wonderful things.

  4. I'm embarrassed to say: I have painted a girl and horse painting similar to yours but not as cool, oh, so not as cool. It was during my romantic Laura Ashley slightly tortured tweens. It was a white horse and a shirtless woman--but only from the shoulders up. I was leaving something for the imagination. :) I hope my mom has burned it.

    Yes! I love finding someone else's forgotten art. It's like a lost puppy--you gotta give it some love.
