Missing from 1990

Watercolour and Photoshop
©1990 Charlene Brown

This was painted following a visit to our daughter at her school in Switzerland.  I’ve since decided the original was kind of pale, so I’ve bumped up the colours in Photoshop and, while I was at it, changed the proportions compared to photos of the coffee shop on the Neuchatel lakefront, for example, the painting had everything stretched vertically.

The school in Switzerland was mentioned in my 1990 Christmas letter, but I didn’t think of including this painting until I started my current project to consolidate all the annual letters beginning that year.
