"Love of A Collectors' Journey"
The paintings in this story weren't always together in the collection. The one on the right was found in northern Michigan and hung in my residence for at least five years. A landscape with a single figure, a fisherman, and a single fish far from the reach of its pursuer. Never even realizing there may be other paintings by the unknown artist, the painting hung alone in my collection.

Years pass. A new residence. A new relationship that grows to a cohabitation. Interests grow in many ways. Travel, reading, collecting and sharing.

And of course, here it comes, trips to flea markets. Randolph Street market a favorite find.

One Sunday I was caught dead in my tracks when I realized while standing in a vendors booth I was face to face in front of the mate to the painting of the landscape with the fisherman.

Now the two paintings hang side by side. Another landscape. This time of two men, hunters to be exact. Together in their pursuit.

Is this a case of life imitating art? Or another story of collecting? Or an even greater love story?

Either way the collectors, lovers or hunters are together in their pursuit of many more fantastic adventures.
