Fast forward X many years later J. E. Tramel has trademarked "Dream Tree", and someone is producing these neat little trees made of twisted wire with tiny little foil leaves. Kind of reminds me of metal bonsai trees. The Label Reads:
It doesn't do anything, just sits there
AN ORIGINAL DREAM TREE
and then a hand written registration number
They look like this. Wonder Woman found this last Wednesday when we were out doing the thrift store thing. There's more. . .
These things have sold for as much as ninety dollars on ebay. Can you believe that? Ninety Dollars!
|Reminds me of a Simon & Garfunkle song.|
That doesn't really surprise me though. ebay has a world wide audience, and if you have enough people just about anything will sell.
|Looks like I picked the wrong color background to be shooting this.|
|Mr. Goldfinger probably had one of these - life size.|
So that was Wonder Woman's art pick for the day. I found something else that I liked just as much. Only in orange - my official SPLASH color. Need a splash of color - go orange. That's my take anyway.
|No idea of the title. probably something about a sunset.|
Here it is: a painting by Italian painter P. G. Tiele. Can't find much on this guy except that he's Italian and considered a mid century painter. Whoopee!
|Oil on hardboard with orange. That would be a cool title.|
Doesn't matter. I bought the painting before I started researching him. My philosophy: buy art because you like it, not because it might be worth something some day.
|What's not to love. Orange, impressionism, and value.|
Oh, so you think you know me now. You were pretty sure I bought it because it was priced really well. You may be right.
|How 'bout that gold frame? That's worth the price of admission right there.|
|I just wish it were bigger than 4" x 5"|
We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.
