1960s (sex art including love picture exhibition)

The Kiss

This large 6 foot drawing was never exhibited. It's a drawing of my lover Romeil and me when we lived together in the sixties. Back then, a racially mixed couple raised many an eyebrow and was frowned upon. It was bought by my Dutch friend Albert Van Dam and sent to his home in Amsterdam where it is to this day. Since Albert has left the planet, I assume it's now owned by his wife Meis. When Albert bought the drawing, it paid my rent just in time. I believe I sold it for $3000. That would add up to about 25 cents an hour.

I wasn't sure where this drawing was going until at the end I put in the cunt and the cock and then out of that the old lady emerged.

While the big dick was fun, I ended up spending 43 years with the small one.

This is a huge canvas...over 6 feet tall.  I painted this before I stopped partying with booze so I could focus more on my art.
