A thoughtful and meaningful painting wonderfully executed. One way or the other we shall all leave anyway one day ...

There is something about this era that appeals to me so much. I love everything about this painting Skylar, and the jacket is superb.
You can clearly see his emotion, well done dear friend.

Well done Skylar, I love the strength of the person in the foreground against the blurred weaker background, it sure brings ones eyes to focus on the subject.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!!! It seems this is one of my strengths - subject matter, that is. Whenever I paint an image where I have some nostalgic connection, it seems also to have a visceral effect with the viewer.

Excellent work Skylar I love how the background is painted in soft focus. It gives it depth. :D

Tinzo, Coops - Thanks so much! I love doing these "Narrative" type images, where one can read into them.
