"Kodachrome," 8 x 10ish watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches rough press paper
When there are blahs, or whatever other names there are, we need bright colors
That was certainly true during this past year and a half of pandemics of violence, disease, death and dangers to democracy.
It still is now for many thousands around the world for nations. And as the search for "normal" weighs down the days, also for individuals trying to cope with untold emotions
A favorite song comes to my mind, harking back to the turmoil of the Vietnam years.
"They give us those nice bright colors,
Give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah...
So mama, don't take my Kodachrome away."
--Simon and Garfunkel
Thus today's watercolor, the first in a while, trying to escape the blahs.
