the adopter Bettina Hubby writes:
"I have repeatedly enjoyed putting myself upon
William Stone's thoughtful chairs, resting my elbows on his altered tables
and setting things down into his re-imagined shelving. Then I was alerted to this new generous venue for collecting, and scavanged through the offerings; I was delighted to discover an artist I admired greatly and a piece I'd seen before and loved. It is truly a marvel to be able to acquire the work this way.
I've decided to gift this work to Ed Ruscha, since Ed is a
lover of humor and usefulness. I've thought that he and William share many wonderful qualities and this is a way for me to get the two in the same vicinity - and for William to be in the collection of Ed. Though admittedly, I've coveted the chair for myself and have many times imagined it situated in my cottage radiating its humor and usefulness. It is an exercise of selflessness."
