I'm an graphic designer by day, this painting is a color/word association painting. Who decided that baby girls shouldn't wear blue. In the fifties, many little girls were dressed in light blue (virgin blue) and way back, pink was considered a masculine color.

This canvas was a yellow bike, then a ship caught in a storm. Now, I've painted over it again with red. I love the layering and the texture. You can almost see hints of the ship through the red. When I was a kid, I loved the saying "Red sky in morning, sailor take warning, red sky at night, sailor delight." I would sit on big a rock in my backyard, look at the sky, and try to figure out the next day's weather. I miss feeling that close to the ocean.
