New Painting "It's a 5 cent World" (Acrylic 8 X 16)
When I was a kid in the 1940's, 5 cents would take me to a movie, another couple of nickels and I had a large popcorn and drink. A nickel would buy a comic book, chocolate bar, drink and lots more. A pocket full of nickels and I was a King. What a wonderful time it was to be a kid, I know there was a war on and we were just coming out of a depression. For a kid with a couple of nickels who cared, to quote Jimmy Cagney in the movie White Heat "Top of the world Ma, Top of the world."
