No.60: Big Red. In one of his infrequent forays into sculpture, he laboriously carved and then carefully painted a large wooden representation--as tall as him--of a tube of red acrylic paint He was especially pleased by his rendering of the bits of old dried paint on its surface. And he was proud of the way he was able to reproduce a swipe of black paint lying across the tube's middle. His original intention had been to produce an entire rainbow of carved tubes--a visual chord-organ--the next one being orange, then yellow, then green, then blue, and then violet. But he could see it was going to be a gigantic undertaking--and besides, he was eager to get back to painting.
