I had a really good 2019 that just happened to focus more on 3d pieces than 2d.

Not counting this in my top 5 since it was a gift. Amazing Mervyn Pumpkinhead (and sandman) commission from Tom Taggart

I love the rankin bass hobbit movie so couldn't believe I had never run across these before. Handpainted Terracotta sculptures by Mike Makras from the late 70's

A collection of Tulgey Woods characters from Alice in Wonderland by Hailey Haddox

Scott Gustaffson Cheshire Cat painting

In any other year this massive Odin painting by Sam Flegal would have been my #1 acquisition (sorry for the glare)

But this year I finally landed one of my all time grails. An original by Dr Seuss

At first I thought this was a slow year, but after looking through my collection, I have come to realize that the first half of the year was filled with additions to my collection. The second half of the year I was consumed with the purchase of a 200 year old farm, and my art collection wasn’t a priority.

Here are five pieces that I acquired from January through June.

And then just after Christmas I acquired this: (and watched my art budget evaporate):
