This past weekend was the beginning of
Flea Market Season. Each month from
September of the current year through
June of the following year, there is a
large flea market that happens, dealers
from all over Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska,
and Missouri come to sell their wares.
Attending is always an adventure and
somewhat of a treasure hunt for bits
and baubles I sometime never knew I
needed. This trip was all about finding
the perfect picture frames, smallish in
size, very weathered or a nice aged patina.
I came home with some gems that I can't
wait to fill with artworks for my home, like
this charming work, or perhaps to sell.
I love these purchases because of the
variation of sizes, shapes and colors.
This particular frame is a little bigger than
the others, but I completely swooned over
it the moment I saw the seller unwrapping
the piece. It has the most lush dark stain
with incredible acorn details. I can envision
in my mind's eye a running hare painted
against a starry sky background... so stay tuned!
