On the evening of January 11th, 2017, David Morris went to the Lewis & Maese Auction and got drunk. He got drunk and bid on a giant cow portrait. He got drunk, bid on a giant random hideous cow portrait, and won. Madame Jessica Cowington is David’s $10 pride and joy.
“I was tipsy at best…. and the real reason for pulling the trigger on M. J. Cowington is that I’ve always wanted one of those old-money English race horse portraits, but every time I ever bid on one, they go for thousands, and my limit is in the high $20’s. So sitting at the back of the room, 4 wild turkey’s deep, I figured the cow was as close as I was going to get.” – David
Madame Jessica Cowington was not the only thing we took home from that auction night. I arrived. I scolded David. I had myself a drank and directed him to bid on more, eh hem, practical items. Such as:That killer vintage olive velvet and black needlepoint bench! I think we scored it for $30. And the bright stripped handwoven rug is divine. It was also for $30. IDK about the dessert print- David went rogue on that one. I half like it, half don’t know what to do with it. We also got a vintage map of a tiny town in Texas for around $10. It’s sitting on the rug in the last photo, but it’s hard to see. More to come on what we do with all these random but sweet auction items!
