I Stopped By A Couple Of The New Neighborhood(ish) Traps Today Before Heading In To Work And Snagged This Beautiful Asian Junk Oil Painting. Had To Shoot It In The Back Of Frank, But I Got It Done. Status: Available.
This oil painting of an Asian Junk on a waterway isn't perhaps as old as many of the paintings and prints that I've picked up over the years, but it's definitely got the Mid Century vibe, and that's what's important when it's hanging on your wall...right?
The bonus of not being 50 or 60 years old is that it's in excellent condition. Like, zero defects! The
painter is P. Wong, apparently of Vietnamese decent and a resident of San Francisco Ca. Peter Wong
creates paintings that are in that late '60s or early '70s style but as you can see here, this particular
painting was framed up in 1984.
I wonder who all those names belong to? The framers? The customer? Three names...none of them
are the artist. Mystery. At least there's a sticker on the back ensuring that this is indeed an oil
painting and not an acrylic. I'd have preferred a more standard frame, but if you've got a Tiki vibe
going on, this would be perfect! I'm going to gather up a bunch of these paintings and prints I've got
around here and tag 'em all up for the booths and try to get them on the walls soon. Who knows, it
may get done today!
