No Dear John

Oils on canvas

24 x 12”

This is a Fantasy picture. The Marine outside the window represents a self-portrait, not in physical likeness, but in memories of the loneliness in Vietnam. Thinking of my girl back home. And she, waiting for me. I didn't get a "Dear John" letter. Got a note or letter or card every day. And we're still married. Married in 1969.
