A new dog picture that is or should I say old? Very very old.
This is another bargain I found on our trip last weekend. It is actually my favorite, I think. I guess I say that about each new piece I find. I know it is not the best artwork, but that doesn't matter. It is better than I could do. This was probably someone's early work that most likely improved with each piece.
You can tell by how much the matting has yellowed that it is old. I love the maple frame and no, I will not be painting it. Love it just as it is. The signature is dated '57. I didn't even notice that before. So it is two years younger than me. I told you it was very very old!
Isn't he/she pretty? I have always loved collies. Partly because my grandparents had one when I was very young and from watching Lassie. I loved that show.
I still like the other picture that I had above this chest for fifteen years, but these old dog pictures are showing up now and at really great deals and I don't have that many walls so the other one moved to a new spot.
I think this is perfect here.
Not a bad deal for only $18. Oh, how I am loving the thrill of the hunt.
The store I found this at is the Screen Door in Asheville, NC. Love that store.
Do you love the hunt?
Have a super duper week!
