For Safe Keeping

8 x 8
 Oil on Ampersand panel
This beautiful old spool bed was in my Aunt Jerry's family for generations.  It's so legs are so long, when I was little, my sister and I could sit upright while playing under it.  I loved it so much, she gave it to me when I was a teenager and it's been with me ever since.  It has to be getting close to 200 years old now and I hope it will be around for several more generations.  We keep it in a rarely used guest room now with my aunt's picture next to it and it will go on to my son one day where more memories will be made.
