Farewell to an old friend

Proudly he has stood in the window, serving as a sort of mascot for the gallery, and his departure is bitter sweet.

His name is "T-Rex", more formally "T-Rex Bearing Fruit While Announcing His Extinction", and his maker is the witty and proficient A. Andrew Chulyk (long-time artist and resident of Portsmouth now shaking things up in the mid-west).

I am grateful to my time with him, as he has graced the gallery window for a long while, offering passers by reason to ponder and laugh. Though he will be greatly missed, I am pleased by his being purchased and given a happy home - a permanent place to further declare his own demise.
