Denny’s Adventures In Allee’s “Willis Wonderland” – July 2011 – Part 33

I am back on the Cape and still flipping out over this chalk print.  Apparently Allee took this down in 2007 (for reasons that I am unsure of) and never re-hung it.  Over the years Allee thought she lost it.  I re-found this amazing piece of art when I was photographing things around the office.  I happened to be going through Bubbles artwork and found this tucked neatly away between some of her paintings.  I love this picture so much that I can’t wait to hit the jealous button several times!

    I took this down out of my hallway to hang something special for a party and totally forgot about it until you pulled it out. I’ve thought about it over the years and was afraid I lost it. So thank you!

    This is the second portrait I’ve found in a thrift shop by Raymond Grimm, who I think was a known artist in the 30’s-50’s. I found it unframed and looked around forever for the right frame.

    Love, love, love this and can’t begin to say how jealous I am that I don’t own him.

    I’m glad I “re-found” him for you. When I brought it down off the shelf, your expression was priceless.
