Discovery of a Painting in an Antique Shop

October 26, 2022

Finding things from 1935

My wife and I set out for an early AM meeting on Tuesday.

After waiting for a substantial amount of time, my meeting never showed.

Discouraged and frustrated in the hot sun, we decided to grab a coffee.

We were chatting about things we wanted to accomplish for the day, and my wife suggested to visit the antique store that is never open when we visit.

I hesitantly agreed as I still had a lot of work to get done, and we took off in the metro.

Upon arrival at the shop, a gentleman shared that the proprietor had to leave, but to return in an hour.

We found a nearby empanada shop (to which I think I got food poisoning from), and sat down to wait.

After the hour passed, we returned to the shop and were finally let in.

We had tried to visit this shop on 3 or 4 other occasions before this.

After an hour of perusing all of the treasures that the shop had to offer, my eyes landed on this painting.

I was mesmerized and it reminded me of other pieces that I have in my collection.

The proprietor had no knowledge of the artists name, but mentioned that the piece was done in 1935.

I have no idea why I enjoy things from the 20s, 30s, and 40s, yet I do. I am drawn to these things like a bee on honey.

We negotiated a deal for the piece and it headed home with us for the day.

If my appointment had not bailed, and if my wife had not been there with me to suggest the antique store, I would not have this great piece of art now.

Thank you, Universe! I will try to listen better next time.

P.S. What do you think of this painting?
