Dreams and forgetting

For almost a year I have been hounding my friend Melissa to send me a painting that I'd left at her house in North Carolina during the campaign.
It was a painting I did of Hillary, and it was signed by Bill.




It finally arrived at my house yesterday, yea!
Along with this painting came a surprising item I had completely forgotten about...

Over the past year I have found myself pondering this question, "Did Hillary ever sign one of my Melmac plates?"
Deep in my mind's eye I imagined Hillary signing the plate I made depicting her standing in my favorite childhood invention called "Rainbow Candyland". I decided this was only a dream. I was sure I sold that plate in the Hill-art auction.

Well, ta-Da, check out this classic piece of memorabilia!


Sweet!


Note that I made this back in 2007-vintage Hillary!

Though I have no recollection of her signing this plate, I unearthed this photo today which proves it actually happened.


Funny what we forget.

These forgotten items were also in the box...


My up-coming art show is looking bigger and brighter than ever!

Exactly. How can Hillary signing "Rainbow Candyland" be completely erased from my mind and some dumb thing I once said stuck there for eternity?

You should have asked me, I remember her signing the plate and telling you don't sell that one!
