My Dad , Jack, and me in 1952 the year before he died. 28 years later I began a comic strip called “Jack Survives” In 2013 I bought the childhood home that we lived in and I did my art in the cellar and Dad sometimes watched me paint. He was very supportive and proud of my ability considering the fact that he was a working class man with a 10th grade education. I was 15 when he died. I think Dad would have approved of my life as an artist in NYC for 55 years and that I now own and live in the house he last lived in. My Mom sold our house in 1958 and different families lived here over the years until I was able to buy it in 2013. My best paintings have been about this house and my family when we lived here all done from memory. The first time I saw it again since 1958 was 2013. Guess I will now start memory paintings about the artist loft I lived and worked in on w.28th St NYC for the past 50 years.
