Carol Hine Watercolor Painting Orchid
I bought this painting a couple weeks ago at local thrift store. It cost me $10. The artist is Carol Hine from St Martin. The title of the painting appears to be Orchidae “Pays”. The painting is 14 inches by 15 inches and came matted and framed.

K. Wolf Webb Watercolor Painting Summer Egret 1968
I went out for a bike ride at lunch from work. I stopped in at a couple thrift stores including a Goodwill store. I found this painting which I really liked. But I had forgotten my loupe, so I wasn’t sure if it was an original, or a print. Looking at it, I thought it was an original. It looked like pencil parks among the watercolor paint. So I rode back to work, changed clothes, and headed back to the Goodwill hoping the painting was still there. It was. I looked at it under the loupe, and sure enough, it wasn’t a print. Yay! I bought it for $18.  On the front written in pencil is the the title of the painting “Summer Egret”, along with the artist’s signature K Wolf Webb and a date 1968. Pretty cool that this painting is almost 45 years old.  The card on the back lists the artist’s name as K Wolf Webb from Charlotte, NC. There is a price listed of $400 plus $50 for the frame. The painting is 21 inches by 29 inches. Great deal! I contacted the artist whose full name is Katherine Wolf Webb. She painted this in 1968 as part of a series of paintings of egrets for a show at Boston College. I really like this painting. It is among my favorite thrift store art finds!
