I thought this painting never left my Berkeley apartment when I moved out around 1980, so I was quite surprised to find it in a stack of unhung pictures today, deep, deep in the front hall closet.
It tells a story but I'm not sure what that story is.
It's not as yellow as this jpeg and the colors are intense. I painted it around 1974. At the time I was very inspired by watercolor paintings being done by a group of smart women in the East Bay. One of them, Lulu Stanley, is still painting, though I got stuck trying to find an image with google just now.
Can you believe I painted every one of those beads in the beaded curtain? Computers have made me so lazy about results.
Painting measures 8.5" x 11" and is for sale, framed already, for $600.
