A friend lost a wall during remodeling which meant the photo I gave her back in 2004 had no place to hang in 2019. She donated it to the local Goodwill thrift shop. My biggest collector, Ken Morrison, recognized my work right away and rescued the photo from oblivion. The photo looks something like fireworks but is really the bottom of a casserole dish that had been nearly scraped clean. Does this incident mean my artwork will outlive me?
And to make it even better, I’m the one who removed the wall that used to hold this picture. Kismet.
Yeah Ken, love that smile! 😄
or that you are scraping bottom looking for hidden meaning?
Danny replied: I’d forgotten what a punster you are, John! Excellent!
Both your artwork and your casseroles will out live you.
Danny replied: The carrot casserole was my wife’s and, no, it seldom lasts longer than one meal.
Do you think he recognized it because he was the last person to get any of the casserole?
Danny replied: Ken says he recognized my “style”. I did not know I had one, but others tell me I do, one they can recognize but find it hard to describe.
Ken is responsible for my first floor’s live-ability.
Danny replied: … and most of my home, all of the apartment attached to our home, and all of my wife’s fiber art studio behind our home.
Is he going to hang it in the kitchen?
Danny replied: Ken has maybe five of my photos already in his kitchen and dining area. If he takes one down in order to put this one up, maybe he will donate it to Goodwill. More kismet!
Danny, unlike most photographers, you won’t have to imagine all of your life’s work ending up in the dumpster behind the nursing home.
Danny replied: Just most of it!
