Arielle and I are in Santa Fe, and are at a Southwestern Art Antiques Show. We bump into Ed Ruscha.  Arielle is maybe six or seven.

ME: Arielle, this is Mister Ruscha. He painted that picture of the clock that’s in the bedroom.

ARIELLE: The picture of the clock?

ME: That one.

ARIELLE: That wasn’t too hard to paint.

ED: Well then, why don’t you try.
