Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Who wrote "only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun"? Anyway, that's what came to me as I did this painting. It's taken me weeks to do; these holidays sure do mess up our schedules, don't they? The photo was taken somewhere in Germany, I think, by my father in 1964. I love the light and the angle until, that is, I tried to draw it. I see a couple of things to finish, but basically it's done.
