    My Goodwill Score

    This is by H. Hargrove, its called Quilting Bee. I have several of his paintings most of them are numbered but this is not. I only paid $37.00 for it and its listed on a Hargrove site for $1500.00, its a 20x24 pretty good size and the frame was included.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I have the same exact painting (by Hargrove) hanging in this room. I purchased it @25 yrs ago at a "painting party" hosted by a friend.....in fact I have alot of his paintings.

    You really got a bargain........I believe I paid @$100 + for it 25 yrs ago. I guess the donor didn't realize the value.
    Enjoy it....I have mine.

    I too have quite a few of his paintings. Sometimes I think people just don't know what they are giving up or maybe they just have too much money they just don't care. I know what I paid for my paintings and they are worth more than what I paid for this one. I have been wanting this painting for quite awhile now, I just love it. I now have it hanging in my sewing/quilting/office room

    I would make a space to hang in my sewing room or a room where you display your quilts. It's beautiful!
