The Kiss

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.

Hello Betty and Carlin,
Is it possible to purchase a copy of this? I can't see it on Imagekind, so think maybe not??

It's simply beautiful.

Have a great day,


Beautiful . . . .

This is simply wonderful. I love seeing inter-racial art such as this. Being a Black man myself, I love seeing things like this and wish I could buy a copy.
