Watercolor

My father painted small watercolors. Though never formally trained, he was good at it. He used good paper and his paints came in tiny tubes. Payne’s Gray was his favorite, a dark gray that found its way into every watercolor … sky, ocean, the hull of a derelict boat on a deserted beach. I once went with my father to pick up a painting of his that had been in an exhibit but his painting wasn’t there. They told him it had been stolen from the show. I expected my father to be angry or indignant, but he was oddly pleased.
