Armor of god dog tags


Armor of god dog tags, and other items that he used to make the

medals with is a work of art.

Some of his works are on paper, some on canvas, some are on wood.

At the time he was about 35, some of the art work he did was not

accepted because his work was too good. He kept making. He wasn't the

kind of artist that was looking for prse, he did it to express the

way he felt.

I had the privilege of going to the last performance he did, a few

months before his death. And, you could just feel the presence, the

presence of this man and how much it meant to him. And, I will tell

you, I never had a better audience. We had to stand for two hours to

see it.

When he got up from the podium, one of the old timers told me, "You

know, Bill, he got it."

He was truly a great man. He was truly a great artist.

And, by the way, the last words he wrote was "I don't know, my

children."

Well, one of the last words he sd is "my children." I will pass

that on.

[APPLAUSE]

The last words he wrote was "my children." I will pass that on.

I have known John for some 20 years. He was a very good guy. He

was a very good pnter. He wasn't a bad guy. He didn't drink, he

didn't smoke. And, that is all I can say about him.

I have been commissioned, by his son, to pnt a picture that will

be a tribute to his father. It will be his last, the last thing he

ever did. I am going to be working on it for the next two weeks.

I'm going to have his whole family, I'm going to have his widow,

his daughter, his son, his two grandchildren. I have been working

on it.

Well, I was invited to participate in the National Academy of

Arts. So, I told John I had an idea of what I was going to do. I

thought of John. And, what I did is pnt in his father's memory,

and in his mother's, his mother's family. And, that is about it.

I don't like to pnt any more. So, I am going to do a picture of

John, because he was my best friend.

But, in his father's memory and his mother's, he is represented.

[APPLAUSE]

[APPLAUSE]

I have known John since he was a little boy. And, he is not only

my friend, my best friend. He's my brother. He is like a brother.

When I saw how he died, when he died, I did a very, very sad picture

for his mother, about six weeks ago. It was the first time I ever

did a very, very sad picture.

I showed it in the National Academy and it is going to be on

display, in the National Academy of Arts and Sciences.

I'm not going to talk about John's last day. I'm not going to talk

about John's last day, to anyone, including you. I don't want any

publicity. It will be a secret until he is dead.

[APPLAUSE]

[APPLAUSE]

I don't want any public, or I don't want it to be a matter of

how long a person has to live, for a pnter to sit down and make a

picture.

I want them to work until they are dead, to sit down and work.

I want them to die.

I want them to get so tired, they have to die.

Because John died a week ago.

[APPLAUSE]

When John died, he was not afrd, he was afrd of nothing.

He was not afrd, in his mind, of his mind, or of death. He was not

afrd of anything.

And, he was afrd of nothing, in his body.

His body was like a machine. His mind was not there. His mind was

here.

This is what I am talking about.

This is what I am talking about.

[APPLAUSE]

This is what I am talking about.

When I was in France, he died. He died, a week ago.

A week ago, on July 10th. And I found out two days after he died,

when I was still in Paris.

In the evening, they called and I went down.

And when I got down there, they sd he had died, so I went up.

I was surprised when I got to his room. He was just as beautiful

as ever.

He had just gone to sleep.

In his last hours.

He was asleep in his last hours, I found out he had died.

[APPLAUSE]

And that I have been working for 25 years, I have lived for 25

years, I have tried to make my life a constant struggle,

With no compromises.

To make my life a struggle,

With no compromises.

To make my life a constant struggle.

I'm going to struggle with the truth, all my life.

To make it a struggle, to make it a struggle.

Because I want to live my life like this, even after my death.

[APPLAUSE]

I have tried to make my life a struggle.

And there is no-one to go to, if I make a mistake.

[APPLAUSE]

No-one to go to, if I make a mistake.

The children, I don't have any children.

I don't have any children.

But I have an obligation, a duty, towards the children of India.

That I have an obligation, a duty, towards the children of India.

I have tried to make a struggle with the truth, I have tried to make

my life a constant struggle.

Because I want to live my life like this.

A struggle with the truth.

[APPLAUSE]
