Happy Thanksgiving!

I have a couple of “Throwback Thursday” posts for you. I’ll save the rest for later.

This is an acrylic painting of my beloved backpack. I had it in my college years. It was stolen once, but I found it thrown in a corner in one of the classrooms. My money was gone, but everything else was there. A few years later I brought it with me to UNF when I was studying Fine Arts, and used it as a subject to paint. That grapefruit was my snack for the day. 

I think I finally lost the backpack when I moved to Canada, or it might be hiding somewhere in my U-Haul storage. It’s the memories that make our belongings so special and difficult to part with.
