Blue Meanie
Anonymous
27" x 29"
Oil on canvas
Purchased at a yard sale in Brookline, MA by Mike Frank

The colorless cuffs and contrast between the subject's eyeless blue head and the stark white background lead some to speculate that this painting is unfinished. Others note that more detail would be superfluous, for the artist has satisfyingly portrayed the essence of blue meanness.

Still others insist this painting is simply the depiction of the ancient parable in which a Blueish mother gave her son a green shirt and a yellow shirt for his birthday. When he next visited his mother, the nice Blueish boy wore the green shirt, only to hear his mother cry, "What's the matter, you didn't like the yellow one?"
