Portrait of a lady

Every time I go to a second hand store, I flip trough the stacks of paintings hoping – not for a long lost Vermeer – but for that one piece that at first looks kitsch but in reality is a forgotten gem.

I dream of an intriguing, roughly painted, woman's portrait and I wish the next examples would pop up in a store near me soon.

PS. What is your secret second hand wish find?
