These photographs were taken in 1961 (I remember this, because my older sister is wearing the clothes in which she celebrated her First Holy Communion that year). The weather forecasts that I watched on the television (still a novelty then) made a great impression on me. Together with my sister, I reenacted them by ‘painting’ with water on the white plastered walls of the outside of our home. We painted clouds, suns and landscapes and pretended to report the weather of the day. I had to be quick though. As soon as the water dried up, the drawings disappeared and I had to start my painting all over again.
