Mike-Related Watercolor: Portrait of Young Mike – Frame 1 (1960s)

This watercolor portrait is removed from direct experience. It is distant in time by about 60 years. My parents took an 8mm movie of their children, Mike, Dave and me. Mike, my older brother is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal. Autism was not well known at that time, even though I’m sure there were many people around like my brother.

Since I did not take the movie, I was removed from the camera’s-eye-view. I was there, but my memories of not those of the cameraman. My particular recollections are not clear. It is as if they are all averaged together.

The next few posts are portraits of Mike from the 1960s overlaid with my experiences with Mike over a lifetime.
