The Town You Grew Up In, "Marion's House", Lynn Cohen


It's been very cathartic for me to have drawn my own childhood home, and now the homes of the three friends who lived across the street from me growing up. We had a very rich childhood, playing out doors and in each others homes together through out our childhoods. When I say rich, I do not mean monetarily rich, as we were probably all from low middle class households, all of us; but we had great imaginations in play and creativity as children. We made up games and ways to spend our time that were rich in fun and full of life!
I am grateful for that.
