148. Ina's High Scores

'Ina's High Scores'
6" x 6"
oil on gessobord

I bought these little treasures at a yard sale up my street and I think they're so cool. I mean, miniature anything is cool, right? The box had about twenty-five of these four-inch pins, and all but one used to belong to a woman named Ina.

I have no idea who 'Ina' is, but these little pins commemorate her annual high scores for more than two decades. She bowled with the 'Classy Lassies' and 'Hits & Misses' in the late sixties, and from the seventies until the early nineties, she bowled in the 'Wednesday Mourners Bowling League'. (I know, sad, right?)
