This also was done while we were in the Warren village apartment. The book was popular at the time. The solid slab pine coffee table (with visible knot hole) was made by Harold Joslin in Waitsfield, VT.

Marin and Tevis the Wonder Goat

Marin milking her very own goat, Tevis VJ, circa 1977. I did my best to stay loose on this effort and not try to get everything ‘right’ as I normally cannot help doing.

Jill and family

Jill and family – pastel on mat board 16″ x 19 1/4″

The inspiration came from an old photo booth image of Jill and her dad Ted Kruger, who passed in 1984. I added mother Helene on the left from another family photo. Ted worked in shirt manufacturing. Helene has always been active as a hostess and in various planning slots of non profit organizations. Jill’s working years were in insurance claims. Ted was from Brooklyn and Helene is a Kohn from Chicago.
