I would like to tell you a story. One day I saw these colorful and cheap paintings in someone's kitchen on Design Sponge (incidentally, our kitchen is also painted that exact shade of yellow).

He also sells 5 paintings "that kind of range from large to medium" for only $21. SOLD!
A few weeks later, nothing had arrived, so I was beginning to wonder if I had fallen for some sort of scam. Then the doorbell rang. Jason went downstairs, and came back up with this.
Yeah. Looks like a lot more than 5 paintings, huh? So I started unwrapping layer upon layer of plastic wrap and brown paper. It was at this point that Jason asked me if I had bought a brick of marijuana. (We've been watching a lot of Border Wars lately.)
