**LIMITED TIME ANNOUNCEMENT** I put the ORIGINAL painting up for auction - The auction link is on my home page : www.thyrza.ca The AUCTION ENDS DECEMBER 4TH. Signed / numbered prints will still be available after Dec 4th OR until I am sold out.

Having mastered the "Hula Dance of the Islands" lesson book on their home planet, Ja and her sister Ju got jobs dancing at dusk for the tourists of Waikiki.

The original images are from a 1935 Curt Teich linen postcard photo set called " Aloha Hawaiian Islands". The postcards are 3 1/8" X 5 1/4" .

I am selling 50 signed and numbered prints of this pair of dancers. The number I have listed as available is how many are left in the series before it is sold out completely.

I will be selling the original altered print in November, 2013.

The series has been featured on:
http://twistedsifter.com/2012/04/adding-monsters-to-thrift-store-paintings/

and my new set in the same series:
http://twistedsifter.com/2013/05/adding-aliens-to-thrift-shop-paintings-thyrza-segal/

I use (upcycle) thrift store landscape paintings as my backdrops and I "Put a Monster On It".

I know this form of art alteration has been growing in popularity but I like to think that I have a slightly different spin on it....I have a background in theatrical set and costume design so I prefer to think of the original prints as backdrops to be used as an environment for my aliens to interact with and to lend a place for them to create their own adventures...

The listing includes:

-Two signed, numbered giclee prints on matte paper with archival inks. They have been enlarged from the original size to fit a 4" X 6" frame or even a 5" x 7" frame if you want to incorporate the border.

-Two 2 dimensional picture frames printed on glossy photo paper. I am including these so you can see how great the pictures will look if you get similar frames. You could use them as the display frames too, if you are so inclined. I personally think the 2 dimensional frame format lends an especially classy element to the fine art...

* I have heard some people express concern that I am ruining someone else's art. I make a point of only painting on to prints...I also prefer prints that have been stained or marked so that it is a sure bet that I am rescuing the piece from the landfill rather than defacing any valuable art.
