Carol Lesher is this week’s guest blogger for the Artist as Collector series.

Mose Tolliver
collection of Carol Lesher

I came across this paintingon eBay when I was browsing around looking for a nude for my bathroom.  Well- when I saw this piece, I just had to have it.  It is a painting by Mose Tolliver, an African American folk artist who painted in a very primitive style.  

Not the traditional nude you might expect, but something I really enjoy!
I hope you enjoy it too.

Carol Lesher is a contemporary landscape painter who has a really cool studio and gallery in historic Kennett Square, PA. 

Carol bought her Mose Tolliver on eBay, I knew someone who had found a Milton Avery at a Garage sale.

Reminds me of  the indie film Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollock? about a semi-truck driver who buys a painting for her friend for $5.00 and after some expert opinion spends her time and energy proving to the art world that she owns an original Pollock.  Hey, y’never know!
