These twelve small intimate portraits are painted with black, white and raw umber. The reference photos were found in an envelope in a small stack of the artist’s father’s papers she received after he died in 2002. These paintings are the same size as the original images. The title is the artist’s best guess of who these people were: fellow students of her father’s at Purdue University during World War II. Given the timing, it most likely means that these men had some kind of deferment from service. Perhaps only son of a farm family. Or a medical deferment like the artist’s father, Bob, had been stricken with polio when he was 20 and in school. It kept him out of the war.
