Time to pass it on...


When paintings on the walls
Blur and disappear,

It is time
To pass them on,

To New Eyes,

Who will
Experience

Joy and wonder
Once felt


By those who give.

  8. My favorite painting is an original by my dad. I paid for him to take a class as a birthday gift. In turn, he gifted me with the painting. I am not gonna pass it on. I do wonder if any of my kids wants an original of mine. Like you said, the courage to ask....

  10. About once a year I get an urge and rearrange the art. If someone wanted one, it would be theirs for the asking. I have sold a few but many will never leave.
