Happy Thanksgiving

Giving thanks!

Sharing an image from an estate sale in an obscure location in Amador County. This was the second sale event they held here so I was able to get a picture the second time. 
Most sales are estates with newer residences, this one is clearly from another time period. 

Early Christmas present to myself. I spent WAY over budget to pick up this 1962 oil on canvas #18 by Edwin Dorris. It was one of those days that I felt compelled to visit this certain thrift shop. The painting had just been placed out for sale. 

I know the technique that he used for the background to the fish on the plate. The artist will apply layers of paint and then scrape away to leave a remnant of the top layer exposing some of the layer beneath. 

The checkout clerk at thrift mentioned there was more artwork to come that was stored offsite. I will be visiting a certain thrift shop more often. For some reason, November, December, and January are the best months for finding original artwork. The other painting by that artist was well executed but I am not particularly attached to migration subjects. 
Pulled the TikTok account because of a weirdo stalker. Too bad. It would have been a lot of fun. I also deactivated my Instagram and Pinterest accounts. Thank you M and your A cohort. Not giving up this blog.
