A Spot of Red

Every time I go to Brown's Wharf, I look at two things:  the red English telephone booth, and the old red Texaco gas pump.  Red attracts our eyes, as it does bulls and hummingbirds. 

I have a friend named Mark Mellor here in Boothbay Harbor who always includes a spot of red in his paintings. Alvaro Castagnet likes to fill his paper with red paint, especially in interiors.  I was always afraid of red because of its aggressive nature.  You just can't ignore it, so you'd better make sure that what ever it is describing is worthy of all the attention it's going to get!
