Damn You Reporter

I know how it feels!!!!

Remember that Renoir painting bought at a Virginian flea market by a woman for $7 that was going up for auction? Hmm, well about that. Seems some nosy reporter from The Washington Post did some Sherlocking and discovered it had been stolen from a Baltimore museum over 60 years ago, so now the auction is a no go . Bummer, I hope she gets her 7 bucks back.

Luckiest Person Ever

A woman in Virginia has every finger crossed hoping that the painting she bought at a flea market for 60 bucks is actually a Renoir. Seems experts are pretty convinced it’s  the French artist’s  “Paysage Bords de Seine,” and may fetch $100,000.
