"Love, Ann Prebys"
This is probably my last painting of my beloved Ann. It contains the whole story of Ann and Paul and our life together. It represents our love and appreciation of the Arts with Shakespeare. We did it all, opera, ballet, theater, art museums, everything world class. I wouldn't have ever achieved what I have without Ann. The Skip Spence verse says about that. The painting is dated under the Ann bird as a representation of it. This one's hers. The love birds are our physical love, which was nonstop. I'm as organized with my time as anyone I know, and I always blocked out 4 hrs. or so for Ann every day. True Blue Love was Ann if anything was. Arranging bouquets was such a big part of her. This is my only painting of her with flowers. Finally, "Later Gator, Luv ya always and miss ya SO much, Ann...Paul" our greetings/feelings for each other.
" Two of the fairest stars in heaven,
Having some business, do entreat her eyes
To twinkle in their spheres till they return.
What if her eyes were there, they in her head?
The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars
As daylight doth a lamp.
Her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night." Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
" This is a song of your hand
Painted so you would understand
A special feeling taken by my stand
And I know I'll love you always.
And you know the sands of time
Are just made of sand,
Even though you may be in another land
You know that
I'm with you forever my love." Skip Spence (loosely adapted from J.P.P. Mc Step B. Blues)
