Blue and red

[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.

[Parents, write on the back of every piece of kid art you save. Artist, date, subject. This is the voice of experience speaking.]
