Bijou (sketch)

Pencil sketch from the mid-1990s of a cryptic tableau later rendered as a tempera on paper entitled Bijou. The painting retained most elements and positioning, with minor changes. The cloud was omitted, the plane enlarged, and the vertical theater marquee which reads "Adelaid" was renamed "Bijou." The painting is unpublished and uncirculated, and will be reproduced in a future anthology.

What makes you think that's a cloud? I believe it's a blimp advertising bathroom tissue.
