Here's another original work of art I bought at one of the thrift stores my wife operates in her capacity as Director of Finance and Thrift Store Operations (!!) for Community Resource Center, a nonprofit organization located in lovely Encinitas, CA.

The painting is done on what I believe is goat skin---making it a great painting and a great drum. This is easily the best sounding picture I've ever thumped.

The painting is unsigned, and measures, frame included, a mere 9 x 11 inches.

The colors just pop with that kind of primal intensity of hue that makes so much folk art so viscerally impactful. The work is infused with appreciation and even gratitude for life. It's such a vigorously sentimental affirmation. It makes me think of how heavenly life can be right here on earth.
