Last October I visited Gary and Linda before my Disney Wotld vacation. You can read about it here if you are interested in how we met. I’m not sure how long ago Linda started painting but I always enjoyed when she posted her work on Facebook. She always said she would be happy to give away her work but you had to agree to frame it and hang it up in your home.
A couple of weeks ago she posted this and as most of you know orange is my favorite color.
I had to have it and instantly knew where I would place it. So yesterday the door bell rang as I needed to sign for it. Yes I tell my mail guy this is my Linda Hansen original and not a St. Louis Blues memento. (The US post office and UPS has been insane with all the deliveries for those items). My mail dude smiled like I was nuts.
I opened it and it was even more beautiful in person. The frame I had was a little too big so off to Hobby Lobby for a mat. Imagine my surprise when they had that color in store and cut it right then and there. I went straight home and hung it on the wall. Allyson noticed immediately because it replaced her Woolzy character painting she did in art. She’s wanted me to take it down for a year. Brian has yet to notice.
Now I just need to find something to replace the 16×20 picture on the other side. Allyson says “mom that’s simple perspective take it down”. I’m thinking about asking the Tony Bologna to do one of my favorite, the dog. I just need to ask him and pick my favorite picture.
Mole Moral ~ Change is awesome, especially when it involves a Linda Hansen original!!
One thought on “My Linda Hansen Original”
You know how to flatter me and make me LOL. Thank you for loving your ‘Linda Hansen original’ so much. Gary couldn’t believe you said you don’t remember when we met. Of course, we know. Gary’s accident was May 9, 1991… 28 years ago. I hope this continues to make you smile. Gary and I can never thank you enough for all the care you gave him at the most critical time of his life.
