Mike Kitner Tribute in Maine Antique Digest
By Philip Jamison

While leafing through the February "Maine Antique Digest", I saw on
page 35-A a neat ad in tribute to our friend Mike Kitner.  It's a
drawing in 19th-century primitive style that shows Mike's house and
shop as well as his Bruder, Frati, Violano, etc., scattered about the
landscape.

This was a favorite picture of his.  He liked it so much, he hung it
in his hospital room.  I don't know who placed the ad, but it's a great
tribute.

 [ I've placed the image at the MMD Pictures site, but the half-tone
 [ reproduction in the magazine just hasn't enough detail to do justice
 [ to the drawing.  Perhaps someone who knew Mike could locate and scan
 [ the original drawing for us.   -- Robbie
