An Engagement

During the month of September I'll begin posting images of my work again. In fact, every day of that month I plan to make, and post, a small (10 x 8 inch) painting of a gold ring suspended by a thread. By October 1st, my wedding anniversary, I will have made 30 of these pieces - one for each year of my marriage.

Thank you, Susan - for the kind words and for stopping by.

Looks like we'll both be celebrating milestone anniversaries this October - congratulations also to you and yours!

footnote: The receipt was for my engagement ring purchased at The Pantry, a pawn shop on what Madisonians refer to as "Willy Street." Later we bought the rest of the set - $15 for Robert's and $10 for mine.
