flea market friday





today Mary Ellen and i headed off to the flea market. we got there around 9:00am and it was already cooking (as in hot!) the sun was beating down on our necks. the flea market was okay today. no major scores. picked up a few odds and ends, nothing picture worthy though! i did pick up this painting that jeff and i had seen a few weeks ago,but when we asked about it the lady said, she decided not to sell it since her sister painted it. so then i saw it again today and said, "hey what's the deal, you selling this painting or what?" the lady just kind of looked at me so i continued and said, " well, the last time i was here i wanted to buy this painting and you said no". so she said, she had decided to go ahead and sell it. so i bought it. Her sister, Linda, now deceased, painted it in the 70's some time. i just think it is really sweet and love the colors. it is hard to tell from the picture, but it has some nice crackle/aging to it. it's a good size painting too, measuring 3 feet by 2 feet.
