I took the photo of this chalkboard
in Benton Harbor Michigan
several years ago. It was just on the outside
of an old building with this message to "Jimmie"
on it. I always knew I would use the image
someday. I found the school photo in an
antique shop in Ohio when we were returning from the
Columbus Art Festival this Summer.
Kentuck was the first time I showed
the work. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
