[Watercolor and colored pencil. Late-twentieth century.]
I’ve had this artwork taped to the side of a bookcase for many years. It reminds me of a small work by Jasper Johns that I once saw in a museum. The artist here, Elaine and I think, is our daughter Rachel.
The subject, we think, is a traffic light.
Rachel says that it’s a painting of a watercolor palette.
When I saw Gunther’s post Rot und Blau, I knew I wanted to make this post.
