Thrift Art Gallery - More Beautiful Mystery's

I've posted a few Beautiful Mystery's from my Thrift Art Gallery before and actually got help identifying a few pieces, so I thought I'd show ya' a few more from my collection.

This is the 1st piece of art I remember buying. It was at a thrift in FL and has hung in every one of our homes since.  So much for starting small, LOL.
It's signed "Dormz Weimer" or Weiner...I've never found out any info on it, but love it just the same.

This beautiful floral painting is also really fun. I love the color and texture of the sunflowers though the artist "Redi" has never come up during my searches?

Asian art is all the rage and this litho by P. Chu has been a mystery for a few years. 
Signed: P. Chu, Poppies II 170/500
It hangs proudly in my spare bedroom all the same, as does this lovely asian inspired bird painting hanging in our dining room.
Signed H. Johnon, Oil on Canvas
Though they may not be worth their weight in gold, these pieces all bring a little beauty to my life everyday. You don't have to spend a fortune on art that makes you happy...but it's always fun to know that artist behind the art!
If you have insight on any of the art on my blog I'd love to hear about it! Thanks for stopping bye!

Cheers ~ Lara


  1. I have absolutely no information on the artist, but just had to tell you that I LOVE that first painting! Just gorgeous. I can't believe you thrifted it!

  2. Did you have any luck finding info on the P Chu? I have the same one but don't know anything about it.

  3. I just bought an Irises litho by Chu - $15 at a Goodwill auction! - but when I looked him up online, the one site I found him on said his name was Robert Chu. here's a link to the auction page with his litho, (You may have to register to see the page.) . Love your blog, BTW. Isn't it great to find art you love at a price you can afford?

  4. I purchased the Chu poppies litho about 1980 for a friend who had fallen in love with it. Still love it

  5. Sorry meant to say it is Charles Chu

  6. Hi. I've owned that exact same poppy print for the past 40 years (it's an A/P). Do you know how much I could sell it for? It has a faint crease at the bottom. Thanks.
