The Conversation

24”x18” Acrylic on Canvas

Another inspiration through Dorthea Lange’s work.  Two men of the thirties down on their haunches along a walkway,  engaged in conversation, a café sign easily noticed, two other men walking towards them in the background.  The division of the painting blue and red.  A scene no longer in America even before the sixties.  But still a scene very much a part of more the third world countries.  I remember my father exactly in that position talking away, depositing his cigarette ashes into the cuff of his pants.
