What you see below is the very wet painting I've done for Hyphen Mama. This painting is a trade (I don't want to cheapen what she did for me by saying this painting is payment for it. It is not payment. It's my way of saying 'Thank You' for an incredibly thoughtful act of kindness she performed on my behalf. And NO, don't go there.) for the rubbing she took off the Traveling Viet Nam Memorial of the name of Gordon M. 'Jimmy' Briggs, my friend who was shot and killed three weeks before we were to come home.
The painting is oil on canvas covered board toned with acrylic. It is 11x14 and will be framed in a 'weathered' wood frame. You see the painting as it sits on my easel, in the family room, in my corner 'studio'.
If it doesn't dry up soon, I'm gonna drive it out there myself. The hell with shipping.
Tomorrow, along with the next episode of The Kid, we will enjoy the first public showing of Vikki North's portrait of The Kid.
