After I got out of college, I lived in half a dozen different cities, and over the past thirty years I've lived in dozens of different houses. When I moved into my current residence, ten years ago, I found this painting stashed away with that residue of stuff that never got thrown away during all those moves. I established it in my greenhouse. It grinned at me. In August, 1994, I realized that almost thirty years had passed. And I finally realized that this guy must have been my familiar spirit. So I decided to paint him again.
