Taffy Marsh, an instructor for Project Management courses at Aquinas has eagerly offered to purchase the portrait of Percy that I’ve displayed in the bookroom over the course of my employment here. I’m as surprised as I am flattered; I never expected anyone would ever want to own a painting of someone else’s dog. She insists that despite the difference in breeds, it reminds her of her German Shepherd.
Is it disrespectful to my relationship with Percy to part with such a monumental likeness of him? It’s the sort of painting that should bring memories of him beyond his years with me.
In any case, I’m glad it’s found an appreciative home. It will make the move to San Francisco that much easier with one less painting to load onto the moving van.
