(verso, CC, black ink) 1984/ Dear Friends, Hope you like this picture. I call it: "Adam and Eve in the Garden". This is the 4th Adam + Eve picture I have done (The other 3 are about half this size or less, and one of them is painted on a piece of china. Everyone seems to like my Adam + Eve pictures and I enjoy doing them a lot more than some of the others.) If you want to read the story, get out your Bible and read Genesis Chapter 3.
