I probably should have tried to find an image of the original work but I just faked my way through re-doing the landscape where it was too faded.Photo: This is a vintage litho- (guessing 1960's) 10" x 8" it is a bit faded but not too badPhoto: Can you imagine anything more frightening than a toddler with four legs? Those extra appendages make her pretty fast for maximum damage.Photo: This is one of a pair of vintage paint by numbers paintings I got on eBay. I loved the muted colours. The painting is 8" x 10" Those little aliens were hay stooks and the large alien was a cow.Photo: This is one of a pair of vintage paint by numbers paintings I got on eBay. I loved the muted colours.

Those ladies didn't know they had come to a clothing optional beach! Life drawing sketch added to vintage print of Boudin sketch.Photo: Richard the nudist art bombs Lautrec.
