Jim Cassel – Print

 

Over the years the most memorable story my mother would tell me was about this print by Jim Cassel. It is torn and stained and looks like garbage, I even told her, “throw it away, mom.” She said, “NO, this piece is the most important of all the pieces I got from him.” She said it is the only piece he gave to her (not sold) and his hands shook when he gave it to her. It was in a folder inside an envelope. I have stared at this print a LOT over the years.

Cassel is mentioned twice in the notes.
