“Hippies” A lifetime ago. Coming up on my 50th wedding anniversary (marriage didn’t survive all those 50 years, but the anniversary continues unabated). Around 1972, shortly after we were married, I did a painting of us–a little dramatic, but, hey, I liked it. About 30 years ago there wasn’t room enough to hang onto everything, so some paintings went to a landfill. That was the end of that painting.

Recently, I came across a tiny, blurred photo of it in the background of a family photo, and decided to paint it again, guided by that smudge of an image.
