A TREE GROWS IN BOSTON

Purchased by Mike Frank at a Boston thrift shop, April 2011

A young man in an urban setting dreams of life in the country. We know he is dreaming of it because the color of his eyes is the same color as the sky in the pastoral image. Sadly, this tree exists only in his head. The harsh demarcation between the rusty urban sky behind his head and the idyllic view of his dreams is a harsh indication that they are worlds apart. In desperation, he stretches forth his hand to touch the tree. But he will never reach it.

Congratulations to Sarahlynn Nichols who composed this interpretation. Ms Nichols has won a copy of the book "Museum Of Bad Art: Masterworks" and is allowed, even encouraged, to use the title Museum Of Bad Art Guest Interpretator in all personal and business situations.
