"Free, Male, and 21"
Acrylic on canvas abstract, and the original is for sale with certificate of authenticity.
I remember when I was 21, and there was so much a sense of freedom, and realizing my life
was complicated when I discovered all the freedom allowed me to do...overwhelmed, and this
painting shows the thoughts running through my mind.

Some Lyrics...." Free, male, and twenty-one, This is such a fine distinction
The career that we've begun, I just made twenty-one, I'm old enough to run
For congressman or clerk of the public works, Or dogcatcher or something just as dumb
If I should choose to run. I make no exaggeration, Just a statement of the facts
Now I'm second generation, And I am manly to the max. And no one can decree
Just who I have to be, The choice is up to me, And if I could be anything, I'd be
Male and twenty-one. It's nice to be a man. I use it all I can"
