Earlier this year Rob and I checked out a show that was on at a fabulous Art Gallery not too far from here and fell in love, serious love, with the paintings of Jasper Knight. We didn’t get anything at the time, but for the past 6 months or so we kept talking about the paintings and inevitably ended with “we so should have bought one.” And we so should have.
Last week I decided to email the gallery owner and see on the off chance if there were any paintings still available. And you know what? There was. And you know what? It was the exact one that we fell in love with. And you know what? We went and saw it on Sunday afternoon. And you know what? We bought it!
This is, without a doubt, one of the most grown up things we have ever bought. It’s HUGE! It’s amazing. While some people have fancy cars, or get themselves some diamonds after they have kids, we are not those people. We drive Hyundai’s. We shop at Aldi. We are travellers. We are art lovers.
So, we now own a Jasper Knight painting. And I love it. Maybe even more than my kids at the moment. Maybe.
Behold! Here she is…
And given that I spend most of my day, here in the kitchen looking out that way, I have a new vista that has captured my heart. And my kids think I am really interested in what they are doing – win win!
