Since my mom’s house was sold a few weeks ago, we need to clear everything out of it before the end of the month. There are loose household items and decorations still remaining as well – the most important (read : sentimental) of which are my mom’s paintings on the walls. Some of the artwork date back to when my mom was in art school fifty years ago. So we just feel we have to keep as many of them as we can, in the family. (My mom’s new apartment home can only accommodate a few paintings).
I am going to an international mover tomorrow to have a few paintings shipped to Seattle in the States. They have to be packed carefully, and before shipping, the wood frames and canvases have to be inspected for beetles and insects as well, I’m told. Yikes, I had never thought of that !
