Definitely Not Counterfeit

Nobody blogs on Fridays, so I thought I'd just share this picture of a painting we found in the attic.
First of all, this house is pretty old, born in 1963. So the painting could be, oh, mid-century-ish. That's hot, right?
And the image is clearly nonrepresentational, unless you count that fish-like figure in the corner. In which case, it's abstract. (Your art lesson for today.)
We think we've got something valuable here.
We think it's a Maticasso.

RICK PERRY IS MICHELE BACHMANN, BUT MEANER

Hot definitely hot! Take to PBS it might be worth something.

Greg: I'm waiting for Antiques Roadshow. Is that thing still going? This is so genuine, it's not even worth Euros. It's worth Francs.

Kate said...

Dunno, you sure there isn't some Persian or Arabic writing in there? Or maybe Morse code?

cookiecrumb said...

Kate: Yes, maybe there's a message! I do see some dots and dashes. I'm reading, I'm getting..."Ya foo!"

I really like it, no matter what era it's from! Put that puppy in a swanky frame and tell everyone it's an early Jackson Pollack, before he really got going.

Zooms: I'll see if I can get a print for you. Last thing I printed did not come out true to color...

Nobody blogs on Friday? Guess you aren't checking out Chez Namaste Nancy where I have a review of a fantastic show at the legion. As for the art - put a frame around it and pass it off as an original. It's quite charming.

Nancy: You're right,mi missed your latest epistle. I'll be right over.
So thrilled you like the "piece." I wouldn't have posted it if I hadn't liked it myself. That Picatisse was pretty good.

LOVE the colours. Have you framed it yet?

cookiecrumb said...

Mouse: Oooh! Thanks. I haven't printed it yet. I appreciate the encouragement from all of you.

I'm not sure...but I think I see the Virgin Mary somewhere in there...head to eBay and sell that puppy!

Zoomie said...

I think it's secret code for Cold War spy mission, but it still looks cool. James Bond was here.

namastenancy said...

It's either late De Kooning or early Cookie but we need an expert to tell the difference. LOL!

cookiecrumb said...

Simply: Cool thing, if you use your photo effects to skew towards a golden sepia, you see the Virgin Mary in a piece of toast.

Zoomie: Oh, probably not that sophisticated. More like "Get Smart."

Nancy: I thought YOU were the expert! Whatever you say goes. :D

I love it that you have found my secret self portrait.

Chilebrown: The artist is revealed! Handsome dude, you are.
