I had a customer in Lodi who bought good Early American furniture from me. One day he helped me carry in a large painting from Annie Tolliver. I’d been on a buying trip to the South. Roff,Tom asked,”What kind of person would buy an ugly painting like this?” Tom, I said, let’s talk. You have two homes –a beautiful home in Lodi and a 2nd home in Fort Bragg Tom, you have a nice Landscape or Seascape painting hanging behind your couches. Is that not true?” Tom agreed that it was. I said, “Now Tom, if you had a painting like this people wouild talk forever!” Tom said nothing. He wandered around the gallery and then said bye. The next time I went into the gallery there was a envelope with a nice check enclosed as a “hold” on a Outsider painting he had seen. Tom continued as a customer until I got sick and had to close. i miss him.–olRoff

This driftwood sign is a keeper. I wish you could see the knot-eye in the wood. And it reminds of of some people I have me,”Let Me Tell You What It Is All About.”
