Priceless Yard Sale Find

Rosemary and her children attended my talk at the Muskegon (Michigan) Art Museum in 1993. They saw me sketch sheep on a pad of paper. I gave the drawing to someone in the audience after the talk. Rosemary was disappointed that I hadn't given the drawing to her family.

Rosemary saw the drawing at a yard sale in 2010. The mat and frame were damaged, so she didn't buy the drawing, but she couldn't stop thinking about it. The next day she returned to the home of the yard sale and asked if the drawing had sold. It hadn't, so she bought it.

Rosemary had the sheep sketch re-matted and re-framed and hung it in her home for her family to enjoy.

Great story!
