FROM SERENITY VISTA WITH THANKS

OKAY AA HISTORY BUFFS – HERE IS THE STORY ON THIS PAINTING. IT WAS ORIGINALLY CALLED COME TO BELIEVE, BUT WAS RENAMED AFTER THE AA BOOK, CAME TO BELIEVE WAS PUBLISHED. HERE’S THE HISTORY!: The Man On The Bed, was painted by Robert M., a volunteer illustrator for the Grapevine, and was first reproduced in the Grapevine as a centerspread in the December 1955 issue. The painting proved so popular that reproductions were made available. Robert M. presented the oil painting to Bill in May 1956. Bill wrote him: “Dear Robert, beautifully framed, your representation of The Man On The Bed hangs in my studio at Bedford Hills. It is a wonderful thing to have; I don’t see how it could have been better done. The whole heart and essence of AA can be seen just by looking at it. … Please know that to my great thanks, Lois adds hers. Ever yours, Bill W.”
