Valentines Not Given

Oil on Canvas - 20"x16"

Finished 1993


Back in the 1990s, I was given the phone number of a girl by one of my sister’s friends. I talked to the girl over the phone for about three weeks, and we went on a date. It wasn’t a bad date, just a little awkward. We may have talked for a week but stopped calling each other. I took a weekend doing this painting during that time using some stuffed animals from one of my sisters and some other elements from around the house, but I never got a chance to give it to her. I can’t even remember her name.
