On this Friday the 13th, I chose to paint this classic black phone. I was texting with my daughter this morning, a method we often use to communicate. We can carry on a text conversation while doing other things. I would type a note in between brush strokes, while she is in class doing what ever she's doing there, probably painting too, since she's in art college. Quite a different way of communicating than when this old black phone was new.
