If Charlotte Salomon went on vacation, could this be a painting of her destination? Expressionist artist had a short life, a victim of Nazis, such terrible strife! Her paintings were full of color and feeling, like this Thai temple that is so revealing. This is the Sanctuary of Truth, a place of worship for elders and youth. If you go to Thailand to visit one day, learn a few words so you can say, “chai” is for yes, and “mai” is for no, “sà wàt dee” is how they say hello.*
