Ebay Shopping: Zotov "Kholstomer" Watercolor


This is likely one of the rare times I'll regret being frugal. (Or, since I treat myself to everything my heart desires, one of the rare times I'm frugal at all). My heart certainly desires this beautiful, original, Russian watercolor illustration to Tolstoy's famous short tale, "Kholstomer: The Story of a Horse," but for some reason (ahem, a zebra skin rug that's in the mail), I'm exerting full will power on this one. What a fool, I am. Signed by the artist Zotov, bids start at $265. Auction ends tomorrow! May one of you loosen the purse strings. The Bushy tax credit needs to go somewhere.
