On the 4th of July my sister usually texts me a link to that goddam Chicago song with a man selling ice cream, singing Italian songs... You know Saturday in the Park. This year she threw me a Joni Mitchell curveball.
A few years ago I got this Seurat painting at a yard sale for $3 gold frame and all. I think I chose to forget the real name of it but mishmashed it in the back of my mind as Saturday in the Park - pointillist. Probably because of that goddam Chicago song. It’s actually called A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
A few days ago I decided to silkscreen on the thing in Bucky Blue because I don’t take gold-framed artwork too seriously. However, the paint was runny and I smooshed the shit out of it. My kids laughed at me. Then today I hit it again with white and the blue became a drop shadow. As if I meant to do it all along. I think it was the 4th of July.
Are you my Bucky?
