Coming across a Picasso at my dad's office

I arrived in Los Angeles to visit family and my first stop from the airport was my father's custom picture framing factory in Van Nuys, Capitol Arts and Frames. My father's business has been around for over 30 years and while growing up we were surrounded by fine artworks that hung on our walls and decorated our homes. There were always beautiful pieces that stood out, but yesterday I was treated to a painting of a woman by Pablo Picasso himself which I was told is worth $500,000. I am not a huge fan of Picasso's work, but I am fully aware of his greatness and since Picasso and I were both former residents of Barcelona we do have some things in common. Take a look at this artwork I photographed yesterday, I was quite impressed.
