This painting is dedicated to my Grandpa Floyd who departed from his body last week to rejoin my Grandma, something he has been looking forward to for 10 years now. A family man, who loved talking every Sunday. Though not one for long conversations, I began a game to see how long I could keep him on the phone. When it was clear he was wrapping things up, I would squeeze in a quick “I love you Grandpa”, and he would chuckle and say, “Well you’re awfully special gal”. Rest easy dear Grandpa.
