Thursday assignment and a treasure

Today's assignment, by Trish, was to take a picture at 4:00pm of whatever you were doing, one to the left, right, back, front and I think up and down too. Trish, I love this assignment, it is so creative and intelligent and wonderful! I wish I was someplace better...but alas, the couch was calling:

My boyfriend has had this picture in his attic forever and he is starting to think it might be worth something. It appears to be a watercolor of Picasso's The Lovers with Picasso's signature and some markings that say it either hung in the National Gallery of Art in D.C. or was meant to hang there. Could this be a masterpiece? Was it stolen and found its way to my boyfriend somehow? Or is it junk? We're making some inquiries now!

Love your 360 degrees. The couch sounds like a good place to be on a hot muggy afternoon.

Good luck with the Picasso. It is beautiful and you may just have a good thing there.

I love the collage and the creative text you added...great job on the assignment! I've enjoyed seeing where everyone was and what they were doing at 4:00 yesterday. So sorry I forgot! :-(

Boy, it sure looks like you have a valuable piece of art...good luck! (Does your boyfriend remember how he came into possession of it? I'm curious!).

..Google "unless your artwork..has sound and absolute provenance(that's its own unique and traceable history) it is virtually unsellable"

Well enough of this ..
