Have I ever mentioned that I lead a charmed life?
I found this big painted bird on cardboard lying on a lawn on O'Connor Street on Tuesday afternoon. It had a light dusting of snow pellets that fell right off and a few leaves and bits of dirt that brushed off with my handkerchief. [It was also a bit damp and warped. I put it between two towels on the floor and it dried nice and flat.]
I knew what it was from the silhouette even before I turned it over. It is one of the Stefan Thompson's paintings to advertise his current show at Invisible Cinema. I've coveted his work since I saw his show there last year.
The unfortunate thing is that because I took CML 1108 - Property Law, I learned that "finders keepers" is not the actual law in Ontario.
So I've sent Stefan an email asking if he wants it back. I hope he says no. Because it looks good on the mantle and even Keir said it was "awesome" when he saw it.
