I found this charcoal drawing today at the Savers Thrift Store. It was priced at $4.99, but the cashier gave me a 25% discount, with tax it cost just over $4. Afterwards I figured out that she thought I was a senior (55+). LOL I guess I am cheaper than I am vane. The drawing is signed J. Carbone. The two birds I believe are sandpipers. At least going through my bird book, that is what they look like. The drawing measures about 9″ x 12″ and came matted and framed.
On my visit to the Savers Thrift Store today, I found this charcoal drawing for $9.99. But since it was Black Friday, I got 25% off, so it only cost $7.50. The drawing is signed “D.J. Guest”. I have not been able to find anything about the artist. The drawing is on 18″x24″ paper, framed and matted. I loved the detail. The artist even captured the snow on the ground. Very nice work.
I need to remove it from the frame, and reinstall it as it is really loose, and some of the nails are missing. I might also look at replacing the backing board with something acid free.
