"a landscape, a wall, nothing, it refers to nothing but color, paint, the size and shape of the canvas, the way the paint is laid on, the thickness or thinness of the paint on the surface, the way it dried, shiny or dull, the quality of the reflection of light in the particular room where it was hung. that was all. except that it was pink. it was not empty of pink. it was full of pink. one might ask: why pink? this detail of pink. then there is language. hard to avoid the connotations of pink."
