Well, not exactly a Bierstadt, but it is what it is and I couldn't do it.

hey there say, ... oh my,yes... you will always have a neat story
thrift store story, to go with it, :)


thanks for sharing... plus, it IS neat,when 'real' art, does not
go to waste...

was just sharing with justthemaid, on a post...
many times, homemade art sells better in thrift stores, than
at garage sales...

it takes a bit, but someone always finds something that
would otherwise be thrown out...

:)

pretty blues should perk up any area, too...
even if you do not fancy it for inside,there are many
places to hang art... and it will still be a 'spark of joy'
to those that happen to see it!

hey there, say, chinchen...

man oh man, i'd reckon that THAT cowboy would really get the prize for
'tall tales' at his next go at it...


thanks for sharing... :))


*say, the yosemite pic up there, could be used like a weather
board, as well:

differnet 'cut out' of different 'water critter' could be
stuck up ther, each week...

nessy, one week...
giant squid, next week...

etc...


mot making fun of the work... i am an artist, and i love to see the
beauty of what each heart shares...

i was JUST GOING along with the 'monster' theme of the thrift store picture idea, and THE OL' COWBOY pic, there...

I'm not convinced that is Yosemite, but that is absolutely, categorically one of the worst pieces of art
I have ever experienced in my entire life. It has nothing but pain written all over it. Buy it.

You can always put it in the garage.

Next to your cot and the old kerosene heater...

Love it... I the wife in this household would like it.
:)

Hey Nita, LOL... I would work it. It won't go in the living room but Bill's office, the den, etc. is possible. Plus with the other strange collections of old skis, climbing gear, old tools, nautical stuff... It can be part of the curious wall that will eventually exist in our house.

hey there say, david... :)
had to stop by and see if you bought it...

great! NOW you and your wife will have a great conversation piece, :)


and--an adventure, to always remember, as you look for a suitable
spot to hang it...

:)


sometimes you just GOT to do these, things, :))
actually, too, blue is supposed to be a good fresh inspirational and
calming color...

you'll see... it will fit in somewhere... :)

Fun thread!
I'm bookmarking to see where it's hung in two years time.

And we are pleased to see that the supertopo art critics have been hard at work!

It's certainly a piece that would pair really well with a Mickey's Big Mouth and all of Emerson Lake and Palmer's Karn Evil 9.
And it's 3' x 4'??? ... Bombastic.
I would so totally rock that above my ski tuning bench!

You never know what you might find.
I have a large print of St. Helens from Spirit Lake that I found in a thrift store. Probably 1960s vintage.
It's a decent picture, but it is a view that no longer exists, so is that much more interesting.
