|Watercolor - Possibly Portugal Scene?|
|Unframed Oil on Canvas|
On a recent trip to Langley, WA (where my folks reside), my friend Ann and I went on our usual thrift store digs. There are some wonderful thrift stores on the island and although we don't always find items to bring home, this visit was a slam dunk.
I love to rummage through the art area, grabbing anything that catches my eye. With Ann and/or my mom in tow, I can benefit from their discerning eye(s).
How do you like my recent finds? A beautiful framed watercolor, possibly a scene from Portugal ($14.00). As well as an unframed oil painting on canvas ($10.00). This painting is in great condition. A gentle cleaning to remove the dust and it was ready to hang.
As an added bonus, we stopped by a fantastic fabric store: Wholesale Decorator Fabrics in Freeland. The owner, Ann Flynn, stocks high end upholstery and decorator fabrics at rock bottom prices. Her selection is beautiful, unique and affordable. I couldn't resist the striped canvas and coordinating twill. Not sure what I will make yet, but how great do they coordinate with the colors in the painting?
