Some days you just need a rainbow. A little color to perk you up and brighten your day.

Today, I need a rainbow. And this is my idea of a beautiful, rainbow-y thing. Not a field of daisies or a pink cosmopolitan or a wiggly little puppy. Nope. Oily old machinery on a rainy day is all the rainbow I need today.


How ’bout you guys? What brightens your day?

Update: Like this photo? Now it’s available as a matted archival print here in my Etsy shop.

This weekend the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) will play host to the Contemporary Print Fair. Visitors to the event can enjoy and purchase prints from fourteen major contemporary art dealers, galleries and presses.
