Lost Work: Weathersby Edition

This tragic tale of family mobility and Acts of God from Ken Weathersby:

Hey John--

A lost art story and image:

This painting is from about 1985.

Last saw it hanging at my family's house on the gulf coast in the early '90's. Shortly afterward they moved into a different house. When I looked for the painting in the new place I never found it-- I suspect it remained packed away in a box somewhere. That new house was destroyed by hurricane Katrina in 2005, so I know the painting's gone for good.

Yes, I was told once, paintings are markers of time. They tell where we were, what was happening, and they often stay in our memory. Perhaps it will return one day?
