A 40th Anniversary Of Sorts

Garage Shelf, 22" X 46" (or so), 1971, Click here for print.

The year is 1971.  Everyone's a hippie.  Everything's upside down.  Funny smelling smoke is everywhere.  Strange new world music going.  Frye boots.  Bell bottoms.  And me in my dad's garage trying to figure out what art is--really.  This is Mr. Harris's advanced painting class final exam.  I'm going to knock his socks off!  Tomorrow it goes into the student exhibition and then I graduate.  I'll mark it NFS so no-one will buy it.

It spent the next 40 years in the back of the closet.
