  1. Has a Derek Yaniger feel to it; very nice.
    :D
     
  2. Nice artwork, dh66 and 1mach1.

    I've been wanting some vintage posters, something 1930s-1950s, maybe movie posters, but really I'm quite flexible and mostly what I look for is the colors and design, but I can't really find good sources for what I'm looking for, even reprints…Anybody have some suggestions? There are a few local shops that will have them sometimes, but best to check in often, to get the best ones, the only trouble is there are way too many antique/junk/book stores and so forth, all along that avenue and every time I go there I spend way too much money, so I have to kind of limit my visits for lack of self control, haha.
     
  4. Etsy is a good bet, too.

    Thanks, dh66 and 1mach1! I actually have perused both those sites and have never really come up with anything I like and can afford, maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords, or otherwise, I'm pickier than I realized, haha.

    If you don't mind motor sports, here are a bunch. I have the first one, the colors are very vibrant, every one loves it! https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage+race+posters&biw=1280&bih=613&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=ESFXVM20K4eXyQT_wIHoDA&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#tbm=isch&q=1927+CAR+RACE+AUTOMOBILE+GRAND+PRIX+TERZA+COPPA&imgdii=_
     
  7. My friend is an artist that works with sheet metal. I commissioned him to make a map of Iran (my wife is from there) for her birthday. Turned out great. He also does US maps.

  8. That's really cool Harv. I bet she loved it.
     
  9. Dale, she totally loved it! Here is a pic of one of his US maps.

  10. Excellent!!

    How big are those, Harv?
     
  11. He makes 3 sizes. I think the small is like 3 feet from Florida to Washington state, the medium is 5 feet or so, and the large is around 8 feet. Here is a link to his Flickr page with other things he makes. Pretty neat stuff.

  12. 8 feet?! :faint:

    Well, I fought the urge as long as possible, but I'm week! I splurged and ordered this from David Uhl, it's called, Lucky Dog, for obvious reasons! The photo dose not do it justice, it is so rich and vibrant in person! [​IMG]

    I have a few prints from Bierstadt, a couple of them Hudson River collection, but unfortunately I can't find all of them online, and taking pictures would simply never do them justice.
    These are the ones I do have, though:

    What I would love to have, however, are some Robert Hubert prints. Absolutely some of the most gorgeous, detailed oil on canvas I've ever seen.

    Thank you, sir. It was an already-framed print from a mall store in Denver -- I didn't pay vast sums for it or anything. Original art like that would be out of my price range too!
     
  17. While it would, of course, be nice to have an original - it is still a beautiful print and most be very enjoyable to have. I absolutely love his work. He has a bit of a Edward Hopper echo, IMHO.

    This group is always full of wonderful surprises. :)

    The wife purchased this print for me many years ago. It's signed by a bunch of guys who have sadly, "crossed the river."

    Over my roll top desk resides D-Day by Robert Taylor (another signed lithograph) from the best wife ever. :)

    And over the fire place is one called The Dove Field by Brett Smith

    And a bunch of stuff by an local artist in residence known as..The Princess...who at 7 years-old does a fine job with oils and water colors.
