Not a lot of bargain hunting going on in my world at the moment. We were busy on the weekend and my husband had to take a drive to pick up some sheep fencing that he purchased online. He told me that he passed ‘tons’ of garage sales on the way there. Yeah, yeah, rub it in. As I have nothing new, I thought that I would show off a little painting that I picked up at work. We have a small tin shed Op Shop as part of our volunteer service. This probably sounds terrible, but I will say it anyway – it is WAY over priced. However occasionally there may be a gem or two. This painting is quite small in size but just beautiful. One of the things that attracted me to it was that it looks to be painted in the same era as one that my Mum has in her hall way . When her parents passed, she said she didn’t care what she inherited in household contents as long as she could take home the painting (she has four siblings). It was painted by her Grandmother who was quite an artist. I will try and get a photo of it later for you. I was a little unsure about this painting at first, but because I couldn’t stop thinking about it I decided I had to have it and luckily it was still for sale. It has such gentle beauty and is almost calming to look upon.
I believe the frame on my painting is Oak (please correct me if I am wrong) It does have a signature on the back but it is pretty much indecipherable, at a guess could say 'Mrs Rulpitt'. There also seems to be part of a recipe written in lead pencil on the wood frame work on the back which is a great touch don't you think.
