Crater. Perfect weather. Hosmer’s Grove. Hike. Bird watching. Picnic.
I messed up this canvas something awful. Decided to do a cover up, pasted newsprint over it and used a watercolor/acrylic mixture on the background. Not mad about the outcome!

Some good art.
It’s really interesting to see the kinds of artwork that comes through the frame shop. I mean all kinds of memorabilia, to original art by kids/friends/, famous cliche prints, and personal photography.
The funny thing is that people seem to spend a 300% markup more on their frames than the art. I’ve seen it too many times. People go on vacation to Europe and buy cheap prints or canvas art from local vendors and come back to the states to pay $350 to frame the thing. Somehow that doesn’t seem right to me, but whatever.
Today, a buyer/reseller of art came in with an original Joan Miro lithograph. A breath of fresh air although it wasn’t my favorite of his. Apparently, it could fetch $30k.
