Just crowing for a minute. I was at Goodwill yesterday looking for posters to put in my youngest daughter's room. She wants more "grown-up stuff" to hang on the walls. There were the usual cheesy kitties, big-eyed kids, and Thomas Kincaid rip offs. And a picture, in a tacky frame, covered by grimy plexiglass, surrounded by a hideous brown mat. For some reason I stopped and gave it a second look. There was a signature on it and a series number. So I gave it a third look. Here it is:
It turns out to be a signed lithograph called "Marchande de Fleurs au Perou" by a French artist named Eliane Thiollier. It's not the greatest litho in the world, but considering that I bought it for $2.99 and It's listed on-line as worth over $300, I'm pretty happy. Hello ebay!
