Trying to solve a mystery

As we have continued in the effort of cataloging Jim Mickelson’s work, several intriguing questions have come up. One of Jim’s nieces has a painting that is actually two paintings. On one side there is a portrait of an Indian woman from the Southwest, most likely done in the early 50’s when Jim lived there. (It can be seen on the SmartArtMarket website) On the reverse is a portrait of a blond blue eyed little boy in a blue shirt. The painting appears to be much more recent that what’s on the other side. We know that Jim had a studio in Rockport, Massachusetts, during the mid-50’s until the early 60’s, and we know that he did do portraits while there. Problem is, we have no idea who this person is. He left no indication of it, and our curiousity is getting the better of us. If anyone has a clue as to who this kid is (!), please let us know.
