Denny’s

A first meal at Denny’s ten years earlier remains vivid in this exoneree’s 2018 description: "T-bone steak, bacon, and pancakes. I had a knife in my hand to eat the steak. That was so strange and I felt uneasy, like I would get in trouble for having it." The meal included both breakfast and dinner foods, enjoyed with parents, aunt, and uncle. This first meal painting of a wrongfully convicted person is a collaboration with the exoneree, the Center on Wrongful Convictions and Julie Green.
