Once I was staying at a friend of my sisters in Toronto. When I walked in I was struck by a painting on his wall. He had quite a lot of great art work, photos of rock celebrities and two china cabinets of interesting collectible knickknacks but this painting was my favourite.
He passed away from cancer and his family went to his apartment to take what was important to them. But as it turned out no one wanted this painting and I ended up getting it. I was so happy because, besides loving it, it was the perfect colours for my living room.
I was hoping it might be an original and worth something but I found out it was a print. Not only that but the original has much better natural colours in it.
I may have helped bleach it out myself as there is a lamp underneath it. Or it may have been bleached by the sun already: I don’t know. Anyway, I still like it.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Talk about something that’s hanging on your wall. Add a picture, if you’d like. If you have no art on your walls, talk about something in a museum. Have fun!

I wasn’t familiar with the artist, so I googled him. English. Died in 1961. Married to Laura Knight, who, as it turns out, was perhaps the more famous of the two artists. Quite the story there, it seems. Thanks for sharing this, and how it came to be in your home. It is quite a lovely print.
interesting. I’ll have to Google her.
