Paterson painting #4
Another from the Paterson series, gouache, ink, old textiles and newspaper clippings from the 1950 Paterson Morning Call. I like the little memorial clipping in the bottom right hand corner which reads “In loving memory of our dear baby, Raymond Swan, who left us March 13, 1926. Gone but not forgotten. Sadly missed by Mom and Dad.” Although Mom and Dad are surely gone now also, I like to think that I’ve memorialized baby Swan in this painting.
