I should have grabbed it…

I must have been about 19 or 20 and to this day I still remember what this painting looked like. I have been to many yard sales, estate sales and flea markets before . I have seen the odd the unique and unusual. Every once in a while I would find something that really strikes me in a way that evokes some sort of undescribable emotion in me. And I know that I must buy it…

This day I scoured through old and torn boxes for that something special. I sifted through the unwanted items and tokens in this person’s front yard. As I looked through a pile of old prints and paintings with some broken and whole frames I saw something. It was a simple original painting that struck a chord with my heart and I fell in love with it. I was in a rush that day. So I put the picture in the back and figured I would come back later for it.

When I came back of course I realized that someone else had already purchased it. To this day I still have hope that maybe I will see it again even though the chances are slim. I did learn a valuable lesson. When you see something that you want… Just get it if you can… because if you don’t it will probably be gone by the time you go back for it…
