New York 1980's
I have been documenting, and was searching for my hand held slide illuminator when I found this picture of me at around 15 years old. I am in front of my oil painting (girl with scarf) in New York, Grand Central Station sometime around 1979 - 1981. I am not sure of the gentleman's name but he was associated with the Scholastic awards. By the way a few years later I had that painting stolen by a gallery owner in Connecticut who closed down and escaped the country on tax evasion. Last I knew it and two other pieces were on exhibition at a bank in the vicinity near Plainfield or Canterbury. The signature is my maiden name Robin Neilson. The model Pamela was from Mystic Ct. It is funny I look at it and can actually remember mixing paint, and applying the layers like it was a few months ago, but it is not quite 30 years ago!
