Got A Pair Of New Art Pieces And One Of Them Is Something Of A Mystery. Good News Is That Neither Are Prints And At Least One Will End Up At The Shag. Status: Mystery Building.
Well, we were going to get out to the Wentzville flea this morning but alas, we woke to thunderstorms this morning that lasted all the way until around noon. So much for the Sunday flea. Wonder what we missed.
I know we didn't miss the Drive In last evening! We saw a double feature of the new Riddick and
Elysium. Both worthy movies but we were hoping for a bit more than a rehash of Pitch Black where
Riddick was concerned. It was every bit as good as Pitch Black...maybe a little better...but c'mon, it
certainly didn't expand the story line of the Chronicles Of Riddick. Elysium was pretty gritty where
it counted, making it pretty easy to suspend disbelief where it was needed.
Back to this stuff... Anybody know what building this is? Is Lisch a local Architect? This is an
original pencil architectural drawing so I'm kinda thinking that since I found this locally that the
building is probably local as well. Probably not a residential building either. The flag poles out
front make me thing it's a bank or something. I kinda wish it Was a local home! I'd love to have
a place this cool looking...but with lots of blinds for those big windows!
This too is an "original" paint by numbers painting. By that I mean it's not a print. Could you
imagine?! I'm sure someday there will be prints of vintage paint by numbers, but I surely not yet.
This one is especially colorful and I may have a hard time giving it up. I might just swap another
one out of my collection and drop It off at The Green Shag Market. I do wish that the frame was
in a little better shape. I might have to clean it up a bit and re-paint it white. Kind of a shame that
people don't sign these in general.
