And Now We Are Six


This is the portrait my dad, Robert Veitch Jr., painted of me back in 1958. He worked from my First Grade school photo which had been taken a year earlier, when I was six years old. The painting hung in our living room while I was growing up and if you look closely at the upper lip you’ll see thumbtack holes where my brothers sometimes attached paper mustaches.
