flea market regret

Years ago, I stumbled across this gorgeous photo of a woman emerging from a pool at the Chelsea Flea Market. The color could only be described as scrumptious and decadent – I really wanted it. I mulled over it for a bit. It was $50 – though I didn’t even try to get the price down. Ultimately, I decided that it wasn’t a “must have” and moved on.

BIGGEST FLEA MARKET REGRET EVER.

I recently unearthed this picture and a pang of regret washed over me. Perhaps this amazing portrait will find it’s way back to me someday? Ugh. I’m so mad at myself right now!

Also… I just realized why¬†this portrait may have imprinted as it did. It totally reminds me of Claire Elsaesser‘s Sea work, which I’ve been mooning over for years.
