Longtime readers will recall Mo’s tendency to put a red-and-white striped shirt on much of her artwork.
Maybe you remember this one (which was featured in the Foster Parent Tool Book!)
Or this one (featured on marathon shirts everywhere)
Or this (currently sitting across the room from me)
Note that she even put red and white stripes on the American flag on the right. Cleary obsessive.
What’s the deal with the red-and-white striped shirt? I’ve asked Mo many times, and she’s always vague. I just chalked it up to an artist’s quirk, along the lines of how she can’t paint unless I let her win at mini-golf.
Until this week.
A childhood photo of her surfaced. She’s the one on the right.
Mystery solved. You never forget your roots (and yes, she still has that haircut.)
Now we just sit back and wait for the Yellow Pants collection of paintings …
