Jack Balas, 2022; SOME GUY'S DECALS (#2367); India ink & acrylic on paper, 22x30 inches

Some guy down the street has covered his car windows with decals-- for cities, countries, national parks, ski areas, brewpubs, whatever. I had a suitcase just like it growing up-- states I'd been to, or wanted to see, places, a real steamer trunk like from the movies. My reflection in the glass today made me think of it differently, though. I haven't see it in years. (Sat. Nov. 12, 2022)
