This painting has sort of a mixed message. Part of it seems harsh, then it feels somewhat joyful. So, I would say the painting contains some tension.

The house is one of Grandpa’s places. We lived in it before moving to the chicken coup. Then another old place was built one mile away by the route that the crow flies.

On this day only Mom and Pop plus four of us kids are here. Grandpa and Grandma are on this day across the Canada US border on a rum run. So, we have this place to ourselves. Dad and Mom were hardworking, honest people. They also had another thing in common and that is they did a […] lot of fighting. When I was a little boy I thought it was all Papa’s fault, but when I was older I realized that Mama was also at fault, she was so […] jealous.

In this painting Mom is kicking Dad’s [butt]. They had been arguing about something he apparently did before she even knew him. He was flirting with Hilda Vitt. All he did was let Hilda sit on his lap, as they were riding in a Model A Ford. I don’t think there was any kissing […]. Mom held this against Dad for the rest of his life.

In the painting I’m the red-haired boy with my hands on my hips in distain. My oldest sister Emma is jumping with joy as she sees Dad getting his butt kicked. I don’t know why she reacted that way. My younger sister Madiline is sitting in the [out]house doing her thing. Fido the black dog is puzzled.

The clothes are hanging on the line, so I know it must be Monday. The painting has the touch of whimsy. I like it, hope you do.

Have a great day.
