A Photo I Like

This is of my dad, painting, in 1978 or 79. (Presumably) after this painting, he made another one, very similar to it, but with some key differences: a man is walking by, there is a flower pot in one of the windows of the building, there is a box in the storefront, and a hyphen in a sign is changed. I like the two paintings together, and am going to convince my dad to have giclées of them made.

His studio is in a different room of the house now, and he paints sitting down (I can't remember if he always stood to paint then or not; I was three.
