Late night queries may not be a good idea. But neither are late night internet purchases.
Last November, my husband and I started collecting picture book art. Well, we haven't made a purchase in a while, so when I stumbled upon the blog of Ian Sands and saw his cool art, I decided to order some. I went to Etsy and ordered DinoCow which is from the book, How to Milk a Dinosaur. I then went to Amazon and ordered the picture book, or so I thought. This was my mistake #1. How to Milk a Dinosaur is not actually a PB. It is a chapter book with no illustrations except for the cover art. This is no big deal. I have a five year old, so I can still read it to her. (and I still want the art!)
I then became a bit obsessed with Etsy. While I am here, let me see what else I can find, I thought to myself. I browsed a bit and found this beautiful mixed media collage. It was on a 6 by 6 canvas and I thought it would look spectacular in our great room. And it was very affordable! (Much too affordable) So, I ordered it. I was so excited. I was slightly suspicious about the price. It was awfully inexpensive for such a large piece of art, but what do I know about art? Well, mistake #2. It was not 6 feet by 6 feet. It was six inches square. So, now I am the proud owner of a lovely postage stamp.
