That up there is a collage my Mom made back in 1970. She was (is) a bit of a hippie. Got her first tattoo in the late ’60s when young, single, suburban Moms didn’t do that sort of thing. She had a curtain of beads instead of a door for her bedroom. But most significantly, she had a white Chevy Nova with a huge yellow sunflower painted on the side. When my brother & I were in grade school it was huge source of embarrassment as it wasn’t unusual for other kids to come up to us & say “Hey, I saw your Mom’s car today !”, but like, not in a good way. Of course, 10 trillion years later, I now think it was the coolest thing ever. Anyway, she’s gonna hit the big 80 next week & just want to share this insane piece of art, full of counterculture heroes, rolling paper wrappers, evil politicians, Janis, Jimi & Jim & all the stuff that rocked her world. I’m biased but I think it rivals anything Picasso kicked out :).
