Interesting original artwork I found in a junk store

The owner is a friend of mine and let me take the pictures when I saw it behind the counter, I told him I wanted to put the images up online and he was good with that.

I've been trying to get these pics off a friends iphone for a few weeks, she let me use it to get the pictures because I didn't have anything at the time. She didn't know how to send them to email and I have never even touched an iphone before so it was kind of a process of experimentation, one of her kids eventually did it for her.

Hope this is appropriate for GD..

2. No I didn't, I haven't been back yet since..

I like it too but I was strapped after paying a bunch of bills and I didn't want to ask how much when I was so broke.

Also I try to buy stuff I know something about and I don't know jack about art.

3. Art should be acquired because you like it. 'Knowing anything about it' is irrelevant

Or should be.

5. My junk shopping is a retirement hobby from which I glean some barterable items

Learned the hard way if I buy things I don't know much about I often lose value on the deal.

All my very limited wall space already has things of a personal nature hanging, not really any place to put more.

8. TRUE. but i was at an estate sale + they had a stash of a swiss artist who died in 1930 + they had

zexoxed his pic + bio for buyers. i went to art school, so i could see the quality of his work under the charcoal dust. i was with bunch of others + i said, this is very good stuff. i went 2 days. i think i got 3 little plain air paintings 1 day. and got 6 more 1/2 off last day($1.50 each). i wish i had gotten more mountain ones. but i did get 1 double sided. i tried cleaning 1 and OMG! its BLUE! i cleaned off the rest & they were great little gems. we framed up 3 of them. hung one unframed. turns out a WI museum has a collection of his work. never would have known w/ out the bio. all unsigned.

6. I just called the only number I have.. No answer and the box is full

Pretty standard with the owner, he's nice enough but kind of hit or miss, like his shop.

Like I said in the OP, it's been a few weeks since I took the pictures, it's a really low rent place though and the picture wasn't prominently displayed so it might be there still.

I put items up on Craigslist for him sometimes in exchange for things I want he has and it always takes a while to get in touch.
