Jack Balas, 2011; SUBSCRIBE (ANTHONY) (#690); oil and acrylic on collage of 1970's watercolors on paper; 35" x 28"
I was in high school in Chicago in the 70's when I did these watercolors and was in love with the mountains out west. Now almost 40 years later, my cousin's kid Anthony is in high school in Kansas and he's saying some of the same things. But I had a coin collection and he's a soccer star, and anyway his parents are keeping an eye on him. Me, though --- I'm keeping my money on him. SUBSCRIBE.
(He tells people he's from Australia, but down there they just call it Oz.)
