Orange Fish

by Rachel Creager Ireland

I never told you when I finished with Kevin’s room. This was the last piece, an Earl Newman poster that my parents had in their basement for as long as I can remember. There were three, which I imagine they purchased sometime in the 50s or 60s, and never mounted or displayed. I finally framed two; this one, and another print of the same fish, with a yellow background. Yellow hangs in my living room now, and orange fits nicely in Kevin’s mancave.

A couple other Newman prints, brilliantly beautiful illustrations of zodiac signs, might find a place in my writing/craft studio. When I do it.
