  1. Your journey into abstraction captivates me as I struggle to make my realistic paintings more abstract and find my abstract paintings resemble really bad realistic work. Stuart Davis – one to listen to intently for a while…

    • Libby – I agree. I’ve learned a lot from reading Stuart Davis, and I like his paintings. But actually achieving abstraction… crazy hard!

  2. I love it—the writing, the pictures, the insights. Having read about some of these shows already, I have to say your perspective adds a new dimension to them without bogging them down in artspeak. I will definitely check your blog before the next time I head to Chelsea.

  3. Liz,
    Thanks for the nice stroll! .
    I marvel at your succinct descriptions and comments on the art works. I would highlight in your blog that we can find history, depth of thinking and contemporary art.

  4. Love the blog! Simple, beautiful and quite thoughtful. The pictures pop and your descriptions make me want to see the work you’re describing. And I’ll have better insights when I do. Thanks!

Please let us know what you think.
