My dream – December 5, 2014

I am in Washington and the colors are grey and have a film over them. I see an orange Gerber daisy and the color is so clear and so intense. I say to myself that is what I want in the painting.

Reading Patrick Modiano and seeing the photographs of Robert Capa brings up loneliness and the absence of color. The grey gradations of shadow are the residue of Occupation and War.
