Gifted an Oil (13/60)

I've got to add this gift to my 60 for 60... I'm the proud owner of an original oil of Lake Webb and Byron Notch in Weld thanks to my sister-in-law, the artist Anna George.

I know I didn't do anything to initiate this 60/60, but I do feel that one of the gifts of getting older is learning how to accept gifts. And I did... and happily so.

This photo doesn't  do justice to Anna's work... I'm really quite smitten with the painting. As an artist--a writer--I so value the effort it takes to create a well-crafted essay, a book, or a painting like Anna's. Such a gift is, indeed, a treasure.
