In the spirit of the Gettysburg Festival, starting this week, I've decided to share a few pieces of art from around the Gettysburg Family household.
First is a landscape by my brother Bob. I love it. It's at the top of our stairs as you walk into the upstairs living room.
Next is a painting my Mom and Dad brought back from China for me. It's also at the top of the stairs. I guess I need pretty pictures to motivate me to walk up the stairs.
Please forgive the flash glare on the following piece. It's my garage sale ballerina. I purchased it for $10 at a garage sale in the midst of even poorer days. After I bought it, I spent the next four hours dreading what my husband would say when he learned I had spent $10!! on a piece of art. He got home, saw it and said, "It's nice." There's a lesson in there about trying to anticipate others' reactions.
Last up is just one piece from a whole collection. I like to call it "Greeley's Crayon on Freshly Painted Wall." Not to be confused with her "Ink or Marker on Upholstered Chairs."
