Success!!! Went to Fort Wayne yesterday and not only got the second painting, but managed to sneak in the first without arousing suspicion.
Painting #2 is slightly smaller, features two teddy bears drawn in a faux cross-stitch style, and has a real mat (which I may or may not use).
Have also decided to stick with two Goodwills (here and F.W.) rather than the original three. 3 is a significant number, but the third location was completely arbitrary, especially compared to the other 2. In this case, location is more important to the concept then a number. Instead, I’ll get painting #3 from the Muncie Goodwill when I drop #2 off to continue the cycle.
Other success of the day – made it in and out of Goodwill without buying anything I don’t need. I swear they pump something through the vents to make everything seem absolutely vital to life.
