The Altered Page left a comment atop a flap.jack and I found his blog and I enjoyed photos and content....go here.. There are some excellent shots of NYC art he took on the street. Explore. Excellent site and he truly appreciates what NYC has to offer, what most cannot appreciate.
Page includes a photo of a painting that was spectacular. When I saw the painting "Kappa,1" at MOMA at least two months back, it was the painting "in the room" that I wanted to take home. I always like to pick one thing in each room that I would take home. I try to stay with what was most amazing rather than what I would have to look at the rest of my life.
A truly great painting makes me laugh with joy. Happens less often with music, something that I also need a daily dose of.
Somehow I needed to continue work - seduced by color and here is where I went.....
In the end, I added Andrea's backyard tree and a snippets of a mandala from the artist formerly known as Sweet Irene - Nora. Not a great image, but experimenting.
A circuitous route to comment on how I had wanted to do something with less color, minimal. With a U-Turn. Like chasing a sun dress in the rain.
