Circa. 1972.

Now we are really in business. This was my first sale, to an art dealer no less. It is a begonia plant that I had on my window sill in Richmond. I remember, around this time, a group of hippies on Richmond Station asking me if I was "tripping". I used to see things this way normally without any chemical help. In fact my two experiences with LSD did not impress me. I have a dislike of Timothy Leary and all drug culture; especially the officially sanctioned psychiatric one. In fact I have formed the conclusion that only the mind expands the mind; certainly not drugs.
