Let's talk about art

Y'all know I like hanging stuff on the wall. Not 1 measly piece per 1000 square feet like some people. I'm more of an art maximalist.  The more, the better.

I came by it honestly. Remember my mother's walls in New Orleans?

Speaking of my mother and art, she recently was driving by a house near her neighborhood when she noticed a pile of stuff that looked decidedly un-junky.  She plopped a couple of boxes of the mystery items into her truck and sped away, just as another vehicle drove up to inspect the rest.

She found a treasure trove of art.  Pencil drawings, watercolors, and even a painting or two.

One of the pieces is, um, hardly a masterpiece.

I'm at a loss for words on how to describe the portrait except that it had water damage at some point.

But looky what else there was...

And this one too.

They're small, with the little log cabin measuring 3.5 x 4.5 inches. They each are set in a mat, but they need to be framed.

Who produced these gems?

Yeah, I know it's on its side but my computer insists the photo should look like this, so it stays.  

Anybody know this artist?  We found a drawing of his for sale on ebay but otherwise have not found any information.

Anyway, trash can be treasure, y'all!  I'll keep you posted on where I hang the drawings.
