Now, Cecelia Giminez, the painting’s infamous restorer, has waded back into the art world with some original work. The Daily Dot reports that she’s selling at least one piece, called “The Bodegas de Borja,” on eBay. Add that to your holiday gift guides.

The 45 x 34 inch painting depicts some old houses on a cobblestone street against a bright blue sky. It’s very nice-looking and does not include any creepy blurred faces, which is a refreshing departure from Ms. Giminez’s prior work, completed during her “Whooops!” period.

For just 630 Euros (or about $820) the painting can be yours, but if you’re hoping to give it to a particular meme-lover for the holidays, better get to bidding. 31 people have already placed hopeful bids for the piece.
