My pal Sally and I found some great art books
at a Church Fair recently.
I am thrilled with this paper back
published by the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1954
in conjunction with an exhibition that summer.
It is a real treasure;
a chronological look at the artist and his work,
filled with great colored images.
Self Portrait 1892
These two are not his most famous paintings,
but they represent his interest in pattern painting!
(See my previous Pattern Painting post)
Note: I'm having significant "painters block"right now.
Change of season. Full moon.
Whatever it is, I am trying to accept it, so am spending time
looking at art, reading about art,
and complaining about it to my friends and family.
This too shall pass.
