Some of you might have seen this on Facebook but I thought I would share here. I was cleaning out the old storage shed last weekend and came across this painting I did in 9th Grade (1978). Definitely AFTK era  :codger:

From the looks of Geddy's nose, you would have been a great plastic surgeon.

Geddy's nose and chin are about 9 inches too small.

I LOVE it !!!!!

If/when RUSH were to release another studio album, I'd love this as the cover ...

I painted Fly By Night on a denim jacket for my first girlfriend ( if you scroll thru the Pictures Of You thread, that's her w/ me circa 1983ish) ... unfortunately, like an IDIOT, I never took any pics of the jacket ..... and I haven't seen her since 1986
