71F in Virginia. I washed the cars and detailed them up, then took the black car for a run out west - with the top off! There were a tonne of convertables and motorbikes on the road. America gets excited when spring time comes. It practically drips from everything.
Since it looks like being a warm evening, I bought a cigar, a gallon jug of a micro-brewery's pale ale and have a book, Multitude to read. Rockin' Rockin' Rockin'. Great time of year to the in the US of A.
I bought this on impulse about four years ago now. It is my favourite painting. It was one of a pair and I am kicking myself for not buying both. But at the time we couldn't really afford it, and didnt have the space to put the painting up that I bought. It spent the first three months of its life in a closet until we moved into the house.
The painting is largely anonymous too, it has Zelda down the bottom. But I dont know how the person is who did it. I think it is their representation/memory of America. The red, white and blue are in a heavy structure while the stars and circles wander across it somewhat aimlessly but very pleasantly to the eye. Then there is the trunk of the tree and the perfect little flower.
I love it.
