Sandpiper and Pebbles

  Sandpiper and Pebbles.   That's the title of my newest thrift store artwork.  The artist, Angie Lea, was kind enough to return my email requesting any information about the painting, which I bought from the online Goodwill store in Washington state.   One of the things she told me was its name.

 It was painted in early 2016, then donated later in that year to the first annual gallery charity gala art auction, at the Washington State Capitol, where it hung in the State Reception Room.  The artist donates a painting each year, except last year when the gala didn't take place, for obvious reasons.


This isn't my only painting featuring sandpipers!    Here's a close up of a beach scene with sandpipers by Jean Odom. 


I'm ready to start searching in person for thrift store art!  That's where I found the Odom sandpipers.

    1. I never go out to dinner, and no movies interest me, so what I miss is the thrift stores!

  2. I love the paintings. I, too, am fond of sandpipers and, in general, beach and seascapes. We have several in our house.

    1. I would love to live at the coast. Not necessarily a warm tropical beach, I'm used to the cold foggy tide-pool ones.

  3. I live miles (about 150, at least) miles from the nearest ocean, so I enjoyed this art, especially the detail on the sea glass.

    1. 150 miles isn't far. Imagine living in the middle of the country and never seeing the ocean, in your entire life?
