I sold "the witches ride their brooms" original print to an art dealer, after finding it in a bric a brac shop in an arcade in Wagga Wagga (had to layby it - I was still at school - it cost me about $20 in 1972(??)- and then it nearly got left behind in a garage of a rented house in Sydney. I never really knew it's importance, just knew I liked it. Wow!! I was paid nicely for it (maybe 1983?), always wondering where it ended up.

Wooow, Sue Sterling - what a story! I can only imagine how it is to see the orginal artwork...thanks for sharing!!

It must be so expensive today...I wonder, too, who owns it...

Thank you Aputsiaq. My husband tells me I'm out by a decade with the sale to the dealer - more like 1993 - but the result is still wonderful. Just makes the time that it was "lost" longer. It all proves - you should buy something for the reason that you like it.

That is such an important point; one should buy something for the reason that one like it!!!
