1. 1-27-2011, 5:00 PM, Walking from Memorial Quad to the Library
2. Sunset from the west cast a bright tangerine glow across the side of the library tower, with a golden spill across the tops of the trees.
3. Walking from the studio past the library last friday, it was cold. It was wintery and blustery and January. The last thing I was expecting to see as I shivered was a huge swatch of Caribbean tangerine across the brutalist concrete of our library. The color was clementines, Florida sunsets, sherbet, and tiger lilies all rolled into one. It was pure summer wonderful in the middle of New York winter. Such incongruous light at a time like that evoked a warmth that did more than my wool jacket to keep out the wind.
