Original Oil Painting at Wildlife Thrift Store

Framed oil painting $75. As it was a donation to our Vancouver store we brought it to Old Toronto to add interest to our new store decor. Alas, we do not know where it came from or who painted it! We know it is a gorgeous with beautiful colours. It is very nicely framed & large. It looks, perhaps, like a scene in old Holland (?)…elevate your living room decor or take it to ‘Antiques Roadshow’ & let them tell you—you never know…?!
