Artist's Description

A neighbor had passed away after a lifetime in the same home. Having acquired all those years of memories and the items to which they are attached. Some of the things came to be kept because they have real value besides any other reason, and other things because they had had value only in a mind now gone.

The children have grown up and moved from the area; as is so often the case. No one wants to return now; and the property is turned over to an auction house to render the past into money. They do their job well. Advertisements bring a raucous crowd; that pick over the items like brightly colored crows. Refreshments are available, music is played and a toilet is rented for those who will make the day of it, a second funeral with hot dogs.

Acrylic on linen covered panel.
