This painting was done as a gift for David Mallery, on his eightieth birthday. It was a tribute to this brilliant teacher that my class at Germantown Friends School was lucky enough to experience in 11th grade. We were the last formal class he taught, as he went on to a very distinguished career in education; teaching teachers to teach. The books were class reading assignments and various items in the painting were relics of those days from high school in 1958. The wall paper includes the names of everyone in the class!
Giclée prints are available on request
