A Sweet Story
Over the weekend I stopped at an estate sale and picked up the above painting for $5 because it reminded me of a romanticized flower farm. When I got home, I looked up the artist and discovered that it was painted by the homeowner who at 92 died peacefully in his home. His beloved wife of 62 years died exactly a week later. He was a teacher, an avid gardener and loved to travel. She was a librarian who loved to entertain and take care of her home. I am certain that I would have loved them had I met them and I'm so happy to have gotten this painting!
