I Only Paid...

... The value of art is in how much it means to you not only how much you paid for it.

 

One of my favorite framed pieces has no value other than what it represents to me. It is a shopping bag I got probably 35 years ago. It has a picture of Snoopy dancing on it. The expression is pure joy. It hung unframed in many different homes, a reminder to seek joy every day. It is dog-eared and pretty worn out. When we moved to our present home it got lost for a while. Once I found it and recognized it's meaning to me I just had to frame it. I put a fairly dressy frame on it and it hangs in the sewing studio as the reminder it always has been.... enjoy life!
