Plain Jane Painting Yard Sale Find!
I found this great oil (I think) painting at a yard sale, for cheap! She is in a Fabulous frame! I loved how she is a Plain Jane rather than a glam beauty. She is signed and dated, Al Mayton 1963. She is Sooo Helen Crump, (Andy Griffith's girlfriend) or Prim Librarian, and I just thought she was wonderful!
My first thought was to alter this painting by adding a crown, collage, poetry, etc. to make her Over the Top Divine! I thought she could be done up as a Plain Girls are Fabulous theme!
But, as an artist myself, I wonder if I should leave her be. Or, should I put her up for sale to a collector?
I've put up a poll on the right for you to vote. Come on! Let me know what you think!
