After seeng the current Richard Diebenkorn exhibit at the de Young Museum I've come to the conclusion that I need more paint! He painted big and reworked the canvas endlessly it seems until he found what he wanted. The resulting creations are rich compositions born from exhaustive workouts with paint and brush. They feel honest and authentic and true because they are exactly that to me. Like a music conductor using a baton his brush must have been a living thing filled with electricity. I stood in front of each masterwork with busy eyes letting his brushwork blaze a trail and take me on a journey of discovery. It's the kind of exhibit that will make you want to paint if you don't paint. And if you do paint, it'll make you want to paint more!
The exhibit will be up until September 29:
