I found all of my school pictures from when I was growing up. As I looked at them, I realized the kids were small like my grandchildren. They were all innocent, unlike the way I remembered them. In my thoughts they were adults. The people in my pictures got to look forward to the Vietnam War, heartbreaks, divorce, murder and other things. Hopefully many of them have lived happy lives and enjoyed the fulfillment of family and friends. This painting shows how we dressed back then — the girls all were required to wear dresses every day to school. I enjoyed doing this painting. I hope my classmates are all happy.
