You know how I love to “dig” into the art I find at thrift stores and yard sales?
Well, get your thinking caps on….
Let’s exercise our brains!
These three precious ladies……
Who are they?
They are softly feminine.
I think she has the sweetest face.
Just a soft, sweet glance.
Then, there is this little, sassy beauty.
Oh yes. Can we say, “mean/nice girl”?
I think she was a little hoity toity.
And how would you describe this pretty?
Who do you see?
Art is very hard for me to photograph.
It is hard to not have a glare and to get a good shot.
But with my love of “old” art, I think I am going to have to figure out a way to show them to you better.
So you have your google fingers ready?
I believe they are antique “prints”. In very, tiny, print on each piece it states:
“Copyrighted 1907 A Fox”.
Alrighty, that is the first batch.
This one was my favorite though.
It is already hanging in my living room…and the sad thing was, when I picked it up Saturday at a yard sale, the older lady said it was a “pair”. She could not find it’s mate anywhere, so she thought someone must have bought it. : (
You may not like this…….
Of course, it’s a tough shot…so I will do my best to show you.
These are two “geisha girls”. I guess they are “geisha’s”.
But it appears to be on silk….water colored…and like a linen or silk matting.
Look at the sweet details.
I love her smile.
Look at her eyes….hands…..holding her parasol……
I love this. I love the depth to her eyes.
I even like the frame.
I believe it is the original frame.
But, I really don’t have a clue.
This is the signature on this piece.
I believe it says “K Nakagawa”.
And lastly…….picked up these two pretties at Goodwill this week.
