I don’t spend money on art.
Well, once I bought a photo for $1 at a yard sale. We are not going to talk about what I paid for framing.
Like most people, our household budget just doesn’t include a line-item for art collecting.
We do, however have a small budget for charitable giving, so when Bob, Linda and John had their plant/art/book sale to benefit Doctors Without Borders, I went pleasantly crazy.
Here are the paintings I bought from Bob Haslach.
Five plants and three paintings later, Doctors Without Borders (a terrific low-overhead charity) is $100 richer.
But I feel richer still.
Love the decapitated boy at the piano!
Interesting…all three. The bottom two remind me of your paintings. The piano one would be admired by all your students. It’s so charming! P

I love how you communicate so well with an economy of words. You said you don’t have an “art” line item in your household budget. Do you have a word line item? 😉
Your words about words (and about art) are haunting me!
Diane, I agree with Hilda above. Beauty and economy. You nail it.
We love many of the same things — art and Doctors Without Borders.
You are indeed rich.
