PICTURE OF LILY? – Who is it? – mystery oil painting found at Nambour, Australia

 

My partner discovered this oil painting at a Nambour op-shop last week. It was unframed, rolled up and hidden amongst a pile of various framed prints and bric-a-brac. It cost her the grand sum of $5.

The canvas – old in appearance – is devoid of any signature or identifying information. So we called her Lily, after the Who song. And Who is the operative word. No idea who she might be, or how she got there. Is she a copy of some master painting I am not familiar with? Or was she painted from real life, in the local area? Her Latino appearance might rule out the latter.

The canvas is quite thick, and measures 700mm x 500mm. We love her, Our Lily. I think she will go on the wall as is for a while, until we get around to finding a frame for her. I think an ornate gold frame is what she needs. She is so beautiful. But who is she? If you have seen an existing work that she may be based on, please let me know (click on “Contact” at top of the page, and send an email). Or maybe you know of the artist who painted her?

Personal Emails Welcome (But not advertising) – Cheers.

 

 

 

Thanks to all the people in Australia and around the world who have sent me emails to say Hi. Happy to receive positive “nice” emails from anyone with regard to my Art Blog here. It is a labour of love, and is totally free. I refuse to put ads on it of any kind. If I mention a business (such as a cafĂ©, art gallery, etc.), I get paid nil from them. Sometimes in the context of my articles, I have to give a location.

It’s good to have a few free things in the world today. And this Art Blog is one of them.

To send me an email: just go to top of the page and click on “contact” – and follow the instructions. If you would like a reply, let me know. But if not, just say nothing. I won’t bother you by encroaching on your privacy. Cheers.

PS: I know they won’t listen (as most are now robots), but please refrain from sending me any advertising spam. It will get you nowhere, and will be binned.

John Lennon’s Birthday today – “Sorrow for The Beatles” verse by Dennis Mealor (reprise)

 

Sorrow for The Beatles.

I feel sorry for The Beatles,
Their lives an empty cup.
They never knew The Beatles
When they were growing up.
True, they had the other greats,
Like Jerry Lee and Chuck.
But they never had The Beatles
When they were growing up.
