Thrifty Artwork ~ Picture by Joseph Bodner

Another trip to Pennsylvania equals another trip to one of my favorite places...ReStore! This past Saturday I picked up this picture reproduction of American oil painter Joseph Bodner for $15 at the ReStore in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Bodner lived from 1925 to 1982 and was actually a native of the Garden State, New Jersey. The title of this piece is Riding Shotgun.

I wasn't sure where I was going to put this painting, first thought in my head was over the mantle, but that is already decorated for the Fall. Then I tried it over the sofa...but naaah, not working for me. Then I thought I'd try it above the piano...mmmm...I think it is just right!
The wood frame actually matched the wood of the piano really well...the colors are also perfect for the Fall. I just placed a few natural and rustic items on the piano to compliment the colors in the picture.


I even added a copy of the book "American Statesmen" by author Patrick Henry, published in 1887, to complete the entire vignette.
Can't wait for Mr. RL to get home and see where I placed the picture...not bad I'd say for only 15 dollars!
ReStore proceeds directly befit the Habitat for Humanity organization.
