Size? Medium? Collage?
Looks like the face of the girl at bottom right is not painted.

This from way back 1972 or 1973 maybe 3 ft X 5 ft. Its probably acrylic on homasote. This is cropped from from an old photo of 2 of my little cousins in front of a wall of paintings so on the right side is my cousin Lucy and on the bottom left is the top of my cousin Karen's head.

I wrote that I thought that this was painted on homasote because at that time I used to get my Art materials from the Mike Douglas show in Philadelphia. They would toss out these painted back drops and I would paint over them.

Looks like a painting of warlords and politicians to me. I dig it.

I think that this was a rendition of a newspaper photo from the Watergate hearings. At the time I was very influenced by Red Grooms and Rock and Roll.
