The Red Ship

Red Ship - Marian Spore Bush

Since Marian’s paintings first appeared in one of Slotins Folkart Auction’s 2015 auctions, the auction house has been the primary source for sales of her artwork. During their Spring Self-taught Art Masterpiece Sale on April 22-23, 2023, a lot of 20 very early mixed media paintings on paper and cardstock were up for auction. The paintings varied in condition from “fair to great,” and their provenance came from Marian’s great-niece.

All of the pieces from this auction lot were wrapped with plastic, so you’ll notice that in many of the photos.
