Ba-ba-ba Ba-Barbara Garvin
|I thought I'd try to class up this joint a little by showing some real, live Art (to make up for what my not-looking-so-healthy meme has done). These thumbnails represent just a few of the paintings done by Barbara Garvin. I'm not really much of an artsy person, but since Mrs. Garvin is my aunt I figure I'll run with this theme for a post or two..... |
To be honest, I've never actually met this particular aunt of mine. But, when I was a teenager, my brother and I went to The Country Store in Austin, Texas to look at some of her paintings and when we mentioned that we were Barbara's nephews the owner of the art gallery took us into a locked, private vault to let us view her more expensive paintings in private. Pretty cool, huh? He told us he'd give us a discount on any of her works that we liked - we asked about one of the smaller ones and he said he'd let us have it for like five thousand dollars...so I guess she's definitely somebody in the art world!
