A good day for art

Last Friday I went in NYC for a job interview ( more on that some other time). Before the interview I spent some time at the Drawing Center, looking at Gerhard Richter's show and found a treasure of a book about one of my favorite artists, Ree Morton. Later, on my way home , I stopped by Chelsea to see Brice Marden and Thomas Nozkowski. Job or no job -It was an inspiring day for art.

What a gift to see so much satisfying work in one day! Nozkowski and Marden are on high on my list.

Oh, I LOVE Ree Morton, she was one of my professors at Philadelphia College of Art. A true pioneer, and a very tragic accidental death. Thanks for this.

Ooh, thanks for the wonderful art tour! I'm feeling inspired by all. I never know which way I want to go with my own painting, and of course everything here resonates with me. Oh well, it's a happy conflict!
