I made a 16 x 20 a few weeks later, matted it, and brought it to the newsstand guy. I told him I made it for him. No charge. He refused to take it. I said, why not? His answer: I don’t want to be reminded of what I do all day.
Good and very sad answer. He’s still there, now in a steel stand, but in the same spot, 20 plus years later.
