Old Man Autumn

Image of Old Man Autumn


“40 years of selling vacuum cleaners won’t only earn you a permanent seat at the Tuscaloosa Chamber of Commerce, it can also get you a sterling silver Citizen Echo watch. Two kids, six grandkids, three bypasses and a half-dozen fruitless, multi-level marketing endeavors later, Walter Tomaszewski enters the season of sickly sweet leaves. Ahead lies a plump 401K, 40 hours of crossword puzzles, Matlock and Tuesday night meatloaf. The light from the candles atop his retirement Boston Cream Pie bring the future into focus with crystal clarity. All indicators point to a piddling existence. Congratulations Walter.”

Original piece. Pen and Ink, Acrylic and Watercolor on 11" x 15" hot press paper.
