December 28 - On the road to Tripoli
Now here's a switch. I paint from photographs taken by my uncle, who was my dad's identical twin, from when he was stationed in Northern Africa. He took many pictures, and I have most all of them. Memoribilia, and useless to most of the family, but important to me. So I paint from them. The back of this photograph says, "This old Arab didn't mind having his picture taken. Between Homs and Tripoli. It was sure a hot day!"
I'm pleased he took notes. I know when he was there because I also have all his military orders. He led a very interesting life...
This painting is 6 x 4 inches.
