Dad's Recline

I grew up with this painting by my father. I can remember it as far back as I can remember. I don't know when he painted it or where. But if I ever come up with a logo for The Trad - - This will be it. I just hope he doesn't sue me. More of Dad's art is here.

Like the painting. Really mod man reclining.......

Just right.

I love the mod feel to this. It's so simple and stylish. Fabulous.

gotta love the thought of a grizzled Special Forces combat vet doing modern and abstract art.

Love it - it's so simple yet elegant, almost Art Deco.

I'd go with it. Nothing else out there like it. Many won't get it. Many will want something with it on it. I would.

Interestingly, your mid-sixties Chapel Hill photo shows a student in almost the same position, just reversed.

I know the perfect spot for 'Reclining Man.'

-Hung over the Sterling, Cooper, Draper Price conference room as a nod to the 'Don Reclining' Mad Men logo on AMC. -Run it by Matt Weiner!
