Grace O'Connor

This painting is pretty much a spot-on portrait of my sister and I and our friend Shelly in the 80's. Except I don't see any booze or drugs in this pic. And my sister and I were even cooler than these birds because we had a red 1978 Chevy Camaro Z28 350 with hood scoop and tail fin and mag wheels and fat tires. And you'd feel my dust if we were in a race because I would shut you down.

We were reminicing about the 80s at work today. A friend of mine said he was gonna do the Jon Bon Jovi big hair look one day. I can't wait to see it!

Cool painting, the background is just too 'blah' though. I honestly think it takes away from the picture. Like a brick wall with posters on it or a parking lot or SOMETHING would add volumes to the picture
