Hand Signed Limited Edition

Edition Size 169 + Artist Proof and Roman Numerals
At the time (1969). A concert with 1/2 a million people was unheard of. To be honest we were blissfully unprepared and unmercifully hammered by the weather. As the painting shows. The audience had to slog around in the mud. Young people adapt to that kind of a mess better than old farts.
Saying goodbye on the last of three days. The clump of musicians on the stage is appreciating the audience and visaa versa. Everything except murder is happening in the crowd as it would in any gathering of that size.
I have taken the liberty of inserting some individuals who could not have been there, but maybe there were in spirit Abraham. Buddha. Mohamed. Jesus. Adam & Eve. Alice in Wonderland. The White Rabbit. My Daughter and Barack Obama.
For composition and space. I have simplified the stage gear and the sound towers. If it looks like a cartoon it was.
