A Trip in the Way Back Machine or How to Decorate a Teenager Girl's room in the 70's
I came across this photo and boy did it bring back memories! You can still see tape residue on the paneling. Get a load of that lamp! My mother just recently took it down to put up a ceiling fan. I wish I had gotten a hold of it - could have been a good Ebay item :)
Do you recognize anyone on the wall? Let's see - I see Rick Springfield (sigh), Alice Cooper, Seals and Crofts, Mick Jagger, Barbra Streisand, David Bowie and a huge poster of Gilbert O'Sullivan. I really didn't know it was that big when I ordered it :) In the upper right hand corner there is a painting I did of Michael Sarrazin, an actor, He was a cutie. I painted and drew lots of my favs in my teens. I never realized I would eventually become a full time artist, it was just a lot of fun.
I was a night owl. In the summer I would stay up until 2:00 AM painting and listening to music. I would love to hear your memories of your teenage room. Feel free to comment and Thanks for reading!
