Newton on eBay....Be Careful

File this under ignorance is bliss. Which is ALWAYS a good excuse for deceptiveness. Looks like the signature and the writing on the verso come from the same black marker. I find that kind of interesting. Be careful out there !

As long as I'm trashing eBay this morning, I mught as well throw this one up here, too.

Here's a "Southern highwaymen painting" that's not one, of course.

For when it diasappears, here's a copy/paste of the description:

This auction is for a vintage 1960's Florida Highwayman Southern Folk Art cabin, truck and lake sunset landscape oil painting. It is in very good condition and measures 16" high by 20" wide unframed. There is a little bit of paper stuck around the very outside edge of the painting that I am sure can be removed. It is painted on paneling and is sign MILT in the bottom right hand corner.
