Going to the Museum of Modern Art in New York is spiritually uplifting. It reminds me why I paint. It reminds me that I am not alone in my need to paint. Walking around the MOMA brings me almost to tears. I get sappy just thinking about it. The power of the art housed in that building cannot be expressed in words. The block emanates beauty. The following pieces were painted on site in New York after the recent visit to my favorite museum.
Central Park, Inspired by Impressionism:
After Noon Fall. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).
The MOMA Sculpture Garden, Inspired by Expressionism:
Water Soluble. Watercolor and ink on paper. 5.5″ x 3.5″.
Alberto Giacometti’s Tall Figure III, Inspired by Existentialism
A Cafe Plant, Inspired by Constructionalism:
