pictures of strangers

I love to buy amateur art. And amateur portraits are my favorite. This one with reds is one of my favorites.

Think how much time someone spent on this painting. No doubt, it meant a lot to them, yet it winds up at a shop or rummage sale. It makes me wonder what I have made that will wind up at a thrift store.

So I love giving these orphan pieces of art a home. Then they are no longer orphans. They belong to me...
