Red Door, Black Door

Red Door, Black door – Watercolor – 21 x 29 inchesEvery morning, the Queen of North Beach walks her panther. Here they are on Fresno Street. In San Francisco it is illegal to walk your pets without a leash. You have to look closely to see that the panther’s leash is only a ribbon that the Queen chose to match the color of her dress and parasol.

She told me that one morning a policeman stopped her to warn her that a ribbon was not a real leash. “It was just an excuse,” she said, “to ask me for my phone number.”

“Did you give it to him?”

“I gave him a smile.”
