For Father's Day! The Easier Path
Painted in 1970 for my Dad.
I didn't understand why at the time I painted this. I had just learned that my father did not have long to live.
Years later, I came to understand after living without him the meaning of this painting. On June 27th it will be 40 years since my Dad died. Maybe it is a long time ago, but I remember him as if it were yesterday.
The Easier Path, one I would not be able to take.
