This is the back of a painting in a group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery that opens this Saturday. It was organized by Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens.
The painting is of the moment before President Kennedy was assassinated. It is taken from frame 226 of the Zapruder film. I wanted to make my piece the last moment before things changed. I wanted everyone to still be happy. Jackie Kennedy is still waving at the people on the left of the car and President Kennedy is still smiling at the people on the right side of the car. It is sunny out and everyone is excited to see the President.
