Broken by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Broken by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Once again I revisit this ornament. If you have followed my paintings for very long you will remember it from last year and maybe the year before. Anyway, I will tell the story once more. Many years ago when I was going through a very rough time in life my sister bought me this special ornament. It was very expensive back then and I loved it more than any other ornament and valued it for years. Last Christmas as my daughter was taking down my tree she said what if I drop and ornament and break it. I said it really doesn't matter except for that special one. About that time I heard the crash of fragile glass and a loud gasp.... I knew in my heart of hearts that it was that ornament. I went into the living room and she just stood there with her mouth open.  I cried...she cried.... gently she swept up the broken pieces and put them in a special glass jar. I could not just throw it away. I got it out today and placed it with my little clear glass snowman. As I arranged the still life set up I decided to put the broken piece on top like a funny little hat. Cute, I thought...
