Yes I was watching the Antique Roadshow the other night, and as always it is interesting to see what people find and have as heirlooms, and it makes you wonder if you ever come across anything that might be worth any money.
So this Lady had a painting that she wanted appraised. It was her Mother’s and it really did not look like it was something you would hang in a Art museum, couple of Boats on the Ocean, I could paint the same honestly, but probably won’t achieve the same amount of money then this painting did.
Anyway, the appraiser was telling her this was this Artists early work, he just had started out, because his paint strokes and stuff have not been refined, and since he turned out to be a great Artist later on, his Rookie Picture is worth about $100,000 to $115,000.
And there came the Bleep. It was so funny, it was not a long Bleep, it was a normal Bleep to cover up probably 1 word which was if I would guess Shit. She continued to sit calmy in the chair and shook her head and smiled.
Now I had to start laughing to myself, which frankly I do quit often, and pictured myself finding out I have a great piece of art there and it is worth a large sum of money. Well there would be bleeps for about 5 minutes straight, and I would not just sit there and look at the thing. I would be giving high-fives to the audience, hugs, and celebrate. I’d be clutching the Painting or whatever it is , and not let it out my sight and would make sure that everyone in that room knows that I got the money.
What I am looking forward too is the Episode that they will have on in January, of the person that just had something appraised at $1.4 million. I just read that online, it is the largest appraisel this show has ever done. I would like to see what he did when he heard the amount. Pass out?
