And Now We Are Six

Oil-Portrait

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.
