This is an original work by George Watson Hall III, "Robin," for short. He is the artist who cleaned the murals in the Saunders County Court House in Wahoo, NE. I received this work in an odd exchange. His wife gave me a Christmas gift at work. In the package I found a pair of turquoise earrings. No one else had anything extra in their gift. She wasn't there to ask.
A couple of days later, Robin called. "The earrings were a gift to my wife from her mother and were accidentally placed in your box. If you would return them, I'll give you one of my works."
"Of course I will, and you don't owe me a thing!" But he did give me this work anyway. And I love it!!!
His wife had another surprise. Many years earlier, she'd found a dainty pinky ring on the streets of Boston. She said it didn't feel like it belonged to her, but she held onto it. Many years before, I'd lost a cherished ring my Aunt Bobbe gave me. I accepted hers. It has a center opal surrounded by amethysts, my birthstone. We were both joyfully satisfied.
