informal searching(s) and findings
Sale finds can tell you something about your art environment, art history specific to the place, culture, society, and yourself.
This is the latest buy of mine, $6 cdn, frame included from the charity store Value Village. People donate household items, clothes, etc. and sale proceeds go to the Diabetic Society of Canada. It just needed a gentle cleaning. I buy paintings from community sales that appeal to me to hang in my living space because I like too, simply. They hang with items, prints, photos, by students, and anonymous artists, my own paintings, and professionals.
