Pink Hills
The first stroke is peachy pink. It is the line that divides the spring sky and the blue-
green hills. With me: a small linen canvas, brushes of all sorts, a rag with old paint, a
glass water container and my rosé in a jam jar. I paint under a tree en plein-air as I look
at the Berkeley hills in Cedar Rose Park.

As the pink line moves across the canvas, the surface absorbs the water out of my
brush. I dip the brush in the water container and the water becomes a bright, peachy
pink color in the sun. It matches the rosé in my jam jar. I look at the landscape and
the painting back and forth, back and forth. My hand reaches for the rosé; I am
ready to sip its fleeting sweetness and be surprised, again and again, by its tartness. A
peachy pink liquid comes close to my mouth, and I stop. A different surprise: I smell
paint.
