THE FREEDOM TO BE YOURSELF, 6X8, OIL, SOLD
You have the freedom to be yourself,
your true self,
here and now -
and nothing can stand in your way!
Jonathan Livingston Seagull
from a very popular book of the 70's
My second choice for a title is "He said, she said". Also during the 70's one of the top women's magazines of the day, I think it was McCalls or maybe Redbook, had a monthly article called "Can this marrriage be saved?"
They would write the wife's story under "she said" and the husband's version under "he said" and then a counselor of some kind would write an analysis of what was wrong in the marriage and what the couple needed to do to improve the situation. So, when I looked at this painting, to me it looks like "he" is saying and maybe "she" is not buying it.
Which title do you like the best? Hmmmmm, I think I just told you how old I am!
