I have never particularly wanted to be ‘rich’ in the monetary sense of the word – I see it as a kind of unnecessary state of being. Imagine being able to buy whatever you want whenever you want! I guess that would be fun, but as I said – unnecessary.
There is however one thing in life that I love, and makes me wish I had disposable income to burn … and that is art. I love nothing more than to torture myself in galleries looking at lovely pieces of art – paintings and sculpture are favourites – and playing the game of “If I was rich, I would buy … that one.”
Well today I became the proud owner of this amazing piece that I have been coveting from afar for a while. It is the work of this lovely lady and I still can’t believe it is about to take pride of place right across from where I am writing this now, in my study. How it has come to live here with me is a story for another time, but suffice to say, I am honoured to be giving it a home. Smileworthy? Oh my … yes!
