My name is Brian and I am one of the delivery drivers here at Charlton furniture. Since I started working here I have discovered a few things that I really enjoy about the job. I get to meet new people, bring them nice things and I get to work outside. I am also one of the first people to see new furniture and art brought into the store. It is this last perk that I was recently able to take advantage of. The other day I received a shipment of new art for the store. As I was looking through the paintings and pictures I noticed one that really stood out to me. It was a photograph of a canoe on a lake. I thought to myself, this is awesome! I have to get this before someone else does. This photograph was perfect for me for three reasons. First, my bedroom is like a cave with only one tiny window. It could definitely use something to bring the outside in and brighten the space up. Second, the canoe is identical to the one my parents had when I was growing up. I have it now and still paddle it every weekend. Third, I paddled professionally for 11 years. So I can I obviously relate to the scene depicted in the picture. Needless to say, I quickly spoke to the powers that be and got the thumbs up. At the end of the day I rushed home and hung the picture behind my bed. Now every time I go into my bedroom I smile. Then I bolt out the door, grab my boat and head to the river.
*What Brian is too humble to mention is that he MADE the oars that he displayed with the art work! - VL
