Grandfather Sculpture

My Pap-pa Irvin Passed away in Jan. 2001.  Around the same time I took an art class at Indiana State University.  When the instructor said that he had some sculptures for sale I was happy because I really liked the Idea of owning an original piece of art.  I chose this one because the story that went with it reminded me of my Pap-pa Irvin.  Unfortunately I do not remember the story or the artist’s name.  If I found out any of this important information I will post it. 

LESSON LEARNED: write stuff down

    That’s a terrific gallery! I’ve stuck the post to the top of the blog, if no one objects I’ll leave it there for a day or two.

    Intriguing collection! Maybe you could find the instructor’s name on the ISU website.

    Funny, I might write too many things. I have piles of lists, notes, and miscellaneous ramblings tucked here and there in my apartment.

    It is a fascinating piece, I’d love to know who the artist was.

    I’d almost think the WordPress software had a sense of humor, posting four consecutive copies of “Everything in moderation.”

    Yeah that was a real knee-slapper! I thought believer was setting up the punchline.

    See, somebody sneaky and devious like me would have left it at that and taken credit for The Funny. As in, “he brought The Funny!” Remember when people used to say that, 7-8 years ago? Those were halcyon days. Anyway, the believer is not at all sneaky or devious, so she’d never do that.

    “Brought The Funny”? I must’ve been in the shower. Count me in as sneaky and devious.
