What do you see?

I received a text the other day from Lis’r (Lisa my gal pal) who wanted to see if I could decipher the signature on a piece of framed art. (We do this kind of trade off of expertise and visual impairments on a regular basis.) The messaging went back and forth for a while about whether to buy it to sell it, original oil vs. print, size, sending a full picture, etc. all the while not really sure where the conversation was going. As it turned out, it was a painting by W. Amion of two very beautiful and vibrant painted parrots. She found it at the local thrift store on their Wednesday 50% off art sale. Can you guess how much she paid? Anyone? She paid $7. Yes, $7! Who does that?! We later found it on the internet for upwards of $500.
