"These Days to Come"

I began this picture on the day that DOMA was struck down by the Supreme Court....quite specifically with four longtime friends in mind. Both couples have been steadily and admirably loyal for at least  25 years. I screwed-up the picture twice before doing it again this morning..."Dry style" (Amusingly enough?....my paintings, like Madhur Jaffrey's curries, are either "dry" or "wet").  In any case?..."These Days to Come" is for my friends...and the many other folks who love each other and who've long waited for this day.

 

pastel pencil, oil pencil, and that's all....
