This piece of art is part of an art abandonment project that I'm participating in. I wanted to leave it on the bench that is in memory of my grandparents. When I got to the top of the stairs I realized there were to many people at the park and I would be spotted. So, I left it on the bench at the top of the stairs. A little while later I received this post on the HapPy gO SmiLe facebook page from Monica Romero Matthews Oh my gosh, oh my gosh...I found it! This is my last day in Morro Bay. My parents and several relatives live here. I live in Michigan but am here for my uncle's funeral. This has been such an emotional week for my whole family. I took a long run from my mom's house out to the rock and sat on my Grandad's bench for a minute before I ran the last 1/4 mile up the hill. Yes, that's right, my Grandad's bench. That bench that you left the picture on was donated by my family in honor of my grandfather, Dr. William Cahill, after he passed away 10 years ago. I sat down and was already emotional and then saw the picture. Wow, waterworks all over again, but also a big smile. Thank you SO much! This piece of art will be carefully transported back to Michigan today and lovingly hung up in my home. It will always remind me of my dear Uncle Tommy and this difficult yet amazing week of seeing aunts, uncles, cousins, and so many relatives that I haven't seen in a very long time. What a gift, a total treasure.
This piece is on it's way to Brazil.
I met Beatrice in the online painting class I took. We thought it would be fun to send each other a piece of art to abandon so far from home! Stay tuned to find out who finds this piece in Brazil!
