Title: "Yard Sale Treasures"
Size: 20 x 24 in.
Date Published: 1983
Rhonda McEnroe, artist
1983 - "Baskets & Etc." Series began with this composition, thanks to a local yard sale. Popularity proved overwhelming once again with the entire edition "selling out" in two months.
This original painting appealed to the thief too, because this was also stolen the same night from the Cigar Factory Mall along with "Flowers to Boot".
Even after the recovery of "Flowers to Boot", more personal pleas were placed in the Messenger-Inquirer asking for its return, yet seemed to fall on deaf ears; until a call came from St. Stephens Cathedral advising me that it was discovered behind a credenza in their lobby, wrapped in newspaper. I was thrilled that the prayers were answered, not just mine, but the prayers of the caring public as well. I even remember being stopped in K-Mart's parking lot about the painting. I thank you all and remember your kindness and concern.
