It's ME, only younger.

H Newton vs Newton

Harold Newton vs Lemuel Newton (or Sam).

Found a new website googling around this morning called Garage Sale Art.

Something to remember about the internet.
Anyone can write and post anything they want and appear to know what they are talking about. Appearances can be deceiving, as we all know.

When I see things of this nature, I understand it.

Harold's work is more valuable than the work of his two younger living brothers, so the owner of this painting would like for it to have beeen done by Harold.

I don't blame the owner. It makes perfect sense.

My opinion, it was done by Lemuel. (With an outside chance as a very early Sam).

So, I signed up and left a comment.

Here's the link:

Fake Livingston Roberts on eBay

All the news that's fit to print is on my other blogspot website:

Go read it there.

Fine Florida furniture

In case you forgot since I told you last month, go buy a couch, a table or at least a lamp from Jean and Ty in Micanopy. Ty makes this stuff in his barn.

And it's a nice big barn, too. Worth the trip just to see his workshop.

It's not just chairs and such, it's folk art, too. Weather resistant folk art.

And Jean might have some of her paintings around if they're not in some museum somewhere.
She'd probably sell you a couple. I bought three, but I only have one left.

Call them today. Do it now. Be the first in your neighborhood.

Print this page and present it to Ty or Jean as a coupon for a special 10 percent discount.

Tell them Bob sent you.

A E BACKUS Moonlight Ocean

We are proud to note that we helped provide the appraisal paperwork necessary for The Orange County History Center for insurance purposes on the donation of the A E Backus Moonlight River scene, a gorgeous painting which is being exhibited for the first time.

Be sure to visit the exhibition in Orlando. It's running through the first of the year.
If you schedule certain days in November, you can meet six of the highwaymen artists themselves.

highwaymen S M Wells

I'm not sure if I shared this story before, anyway here it is.

Brother Wells, when I last saw him a couple of years ago, could hardly see.

His vintage paintings are somewhat scarce in relation to the group in general.
