No, we’re not having that conversation.
I’m sharing another pre-Lucketts find that I ended up “shopping” from the pile before we packed it in the truck. It’s a really lovely original oil painting I spotted in an antique store for a bargain… less than $20.
It’s a bouquet of flowers with a bird next to it…
…and a bee on one of the blossoms…
When I shared this painting on Instagram, a few people commented that they have this print. I looked up the artist and I didn’t find anything, so I’m thinking they are either similar or this artist painted a study of the work of a more famous artist, perhaps?
(Update: Someone shared that it is a study of a painting called “Roses” by Jean Baptiste. I actually like my copy better!)
Well, whatever the case, I love it. I did put a tag on it, but that lasted less than 24 hours. And I was really kidding myself the whole time.
So, it’s getting packed up along with the rest of our belongings.
Speaking of packing, that is just about all I’ve been doing lately. Packing the house, packing the studio. I’ve been up to my elbows in peanuts and bubble wrap. We’re making good progress and have been giving away and selling a ton of stuff. It’s just tedious and not fun to take pictures of or write about.
We will take a break from packing, soon, to head to the beach and I am really looking forward to it.
Of course, I have to pack for that, too…
