Thrift Your Art

Today I'm showing another piece of "fine" art from my collection. I thrifted this several years ago when we lived in Maryland.
This is a Hebbelinck etching which came ready to hang in a frame. Not the best frame, but not too bad. Really, wait until you see some of the frames on my other artwork!!! We've got some real doozies which make this one pretty inocuous.
Why did I pick this up? This is original artwork. Artist signed. It was $10. It has appealing subject matter. The colors are easily worked into most room settings. If I ever get bored with it (or run out of room - which is a real possibility) I can sell it for more than I paid.Why wouldn't you pick this up?

I think you found a wonderful piece of art. I love the subject matter and the colors. I just read your Rednesday post and love the Santa tins! The first one you pictured with the crackled finish on it is just perfect!!
Have a wonderful weekend.
