In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Amtrak to NYC

My cousin Denise Markline Dengler and I took a sleeper on Amtrak to NYC recently in order to attend the opening reception of the exhibition "Bound" at Phoenix Gallery in Chelsea in NYC, where my painting "Corinthian White" was hanging. 24 works were chosen by Cora Rosevear, Curator at Museum of Modern Art.  The title of the painting is the commercial color name of the wall paint (Picasso also used house paint - ha); I am concerned with the idea of what a painting should be.  I managed to get a good photo of the Jefferson and Washington Monuments as we passed through Washington, but didn't react quickly enough to get the Capitol, though the train passed very close by.  Denise said, "Let's do this while we still can," and I'm glad we went.
