Nº 4 (No.4 – Memories of the Summer)
Mixed media on a cradled panel
16"x16", 2021. #1604
These are a series of three vertical paintings.
This particular painting reminds me of a Japanese summer festival,
where there's always a vendor who sells small paper “fishing nets” to catch a goldfish.
They are swimming like crazy inside the fish tank,
but almost always die within a day or two, which the kids are not expecting.
I always felt so guilty for not be able to keep them alive longer,
but because of that, we buy them again next time.
