My daughter raises chameleons. Yes, those changing color, incredibly interesting lizards. She calls these creatures (they really are fascinating) 'hidden jewels'. Anyway, that term came to mind yesterday while I was rummaging around a flea market and found this treasure hidden in a box along with a bunch of empty frames and other assorted paraphernalia. As I picked up this gorgeous monotype to examine it more closely the dealer said 'you can have that for $10'. I didn't even try to bargain him down. I knew it was a piece of art work done with great skill. You just know quality art when you see it. What I didn't know until I was able to do an internet search is that it was done by a recognized Mexican artist by the name of Vincente Gandia and worth way more than $10. I almost feel guilty.
