Today Ronald Tareski finally turns 75! At long last he can accept that he is now an old man just like the rest of us. (Males are old men and females are old women.) Perhaps he will continue to insist he is younger than most of us. I was going to join in with everyone else and wish him a happy birthday but it appears I’m alone in that.
I have been giving some thought to one of my paintings. I originally envisioned I woman crashing through the surface from behind. It is semi three dimensional. Like a sculpture, it is hard to the touch. However, the ball the foot is aimed at is soft to the touch. Hair is made from cloth with all threads in one direction removed. It measures 39” x 72” and is to date the largest single painting to date. I first showed the picture of it at the 45th reunion.
I als have a painting with two companion paintings that displayed together with 4 inch gaps take up about eight feet (horizontal) of wall space.

Ron said he wanted one of my paintings. I took about a month to visualize and four days to actually bring it to life. The painting has its usual wood frame on which foam covered with cloth is mounted I had to design a dress for her to pull up. The face is a ceramic mask with an eye installed to keep an eye on Ron. The lipstick matches the finger nails. My signature was developed when I was in second grade when the teacher started discussing handwriting where the letters were connected.

Using my number system, we are 57 years old this year and are being honored by Hienz with its 57 sauce. Our next reuion is 3 short years away. Again, using my twisted numbering system, we will be 87 then. But for the 65th reunion another 5 years away, we will then be 38! Perhaps there will be a special 38 cal gun to honor us. Unfortunately nothing comes to mind for 87. I’m open to suggestions.
