Palimpsest – Watercolor – 9 x 11 inches.

Life is full of surprises. On the hottest morning of the summer, for example, you step outside onto the balcony to brush your hair. The minute your back has turned, your bed and clothing evaporate, a suitcase and a man’s jacket appear out of nowhere, and your home begins to fill up with snow.
I know this woman well. Life does not faze her, snow and cold least of all.

One thought to “Palimpsest”

  1. One door closes; another opens up. Life’s like that. This painting is full of doors, most of them double width and even double depth (glass doors doubled by wooden ones), and most of them are open. Life is like that, I suppose: it can be rewarding to keep doors open and not to be shocked or dismayed but perhaps rather delighted by what appears. It’s reassuring that the artist knows that the subject is unfazed by what may materialize while her back is turned.
