The Rooster!

April 17, 2017

roosterHere is on of my most recent acquisitions that I purchased “sight unseen.”    Charles Murphy once again offered his spring “painting potluck” where collectors were able to acquire original works of art for a ridiculously inexpensive price (and naturally, I ordered more than one).  The way it works: you send in your money and the artist picks out an original watercolor from his inventory and mails it back to you.  Kind of like a blind date, only with a purchased work of art.  The original painting (watercolor) is always valued at much more than the price you pay.  I’ve been collecting works by Charles for several years now and I have yet to be disappointed by my potluck purchases.  Thank you Charles!

The Lighthouse!

Murphy_LighthouseHere is yet another recent acquisition.  I’m not exactly sure what the official title is, but last spring artist Charles Murphy offered a “painting potluck” where participants were able to acquire original works of art for a ridiculously inexpensive price (and naturally, I ordered more than one).  He obviously was seeking to clear out his inventory.  The catch — you had no idea what you’d be getting.  The artist just promised that he would send an original painting (watercolor) valued at much more than the price paid.  And, being familiar with and having collected this artist in the past, I knew that I would not be disappointed.  And I was not.  Positively gorgeous!  Thank you Charles!
