It's time to let someone else enjoy some of the treasures that I've dragged home from all corners of the earth.
Above is a painted scene of NYC taxis by Benny Carter who is a prolific and interesting "outsider artist" who resides in North Carolina back in the piney woods.
Above is "Mr. NoBull" (my name for him), that I found also in NC made by Hubert Walters, a former shipmaker. Mr. NoBull is made of bondo which is used in ship building. His little hip is being repaired as I write this so there will not be a blemish anywhere. He is very heavy and I so love him. Hate to give him up!
The amount of "Last Suppers" that I have is taking over the kitchen. It's time to share with others. This one is from Ochomichu, Michoacan and was purchased about ten years ago. Aren't they fun?
Last but not least is my electrified church made by "Sam the Dot Man". Sam resides in Winston-Salem, N.C. His work is widely recognized and is even in the Smithsonian. What fun it was to visit him in 2007.
In addition to the above items, there are pillow covers and wallhangings from Chaing Mai, Thailand; items from Chiapas; fabrics from all over the place; ceramics from Guerrero; and on and on and on.
If you're in San Miguel and you want to add to your collections, come by on Saturday from 10-2. I guarantee you'll find something you MUST have. That is IF it doesn't rain.
Leave message with your email address and I'll send you the address of the sale.
