About The Painting...
This is kind of a special painting to me. This is the street I grew up on. And by the looks of things, I'd say it's about 1973. I called it "School Days" because I initially thought of adding a figure of a small boy, which would have served as sort of a self portrait. But the painting does that for me anyway because there are so many memories associated with this scene. One not-so-good memory is being stuck in the hospital for a week with pneumonia. Ahh, but the reason... I was riding my bike up and down the street over and over again with my jacket wide open, showing off for the new girl in the neighborhood. She was so cute! And it was about this time of year on a day that looked much like this one.
As I was working on this, I got my Schoolhouse Rock DVD out and listened to "Conjunction Junction." Remember that one? "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?" I was singing that tune all afternoon. Now if I can only find "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here"!
