Roofless Cabin Painting, $40: "A suburban thrift-store find. I’m drawn to amateur painting; after my experience with art production and the art world, it's refreshing to see people with no training. The perspectives are sometimes off, and the brushstrokes unique but it often moves me more than something perfectly rendered. I also never took any drawing or painting, so that area doesn’t have any baggage. Not sure if this cabin was still being finished or the painting was still being finished, either way there’s no roof to be had. Seems like the artist pulled the plug on this one, which just adds to the pathos factor. There is something very endearing to me about abandoned creative efforts."
