I have a new idea. Okay, it's not entirely a new idea. It's been done before. The idea is to take an old/bad/thrift store painting and paint over it to make it more interesting.
I have a friend who just took up painting and another friend who is getting rid of some old stuff. Motive and opportunity. Here's what we got. An old print of "Golden Surf" by Robert Wood.
