Adding a horizontal orientation . . .

CranePaints:

April 3, 22 – Work in Progress

66 X 36″ Acrylic, Spray Enamel on Paper, on raw canvas.

Yesterday mostly, some today. Working back into something started last Fall. Orientation was left side as bottom, May like this vertical orientation. I switch up sometimes, and usually one orientation sets best to my eye. No doubt some Joan Mitchell paintings on my mind. Hello Phthalo Blue light.

I’m adding a horizontal view:

Joan Mitchell, Revealed and Obscured

Joan Mitchell, Revealed and Obscured

Joan Mitchell Untitled, ca. 1961. Oil on Canvas 118 1/8 X 78 1/4″ Clown for scale.

After ~two years delay, we were finally able to visit the Joan Mitchell exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art on Friday. I have been a Mitchell fan since Robert R. recommended the book “New Art City” some years ago and I had to know more.

You must see this exhibit if you love free flowing, painterly abstraction. Informative labels, and chronological gallery panels and well selected ephemera for context, with some video. Terrific book published to “accompany” the exhibit, edited by Sarah Roberts and Katy Siegel. Full of color plates. Have not delved into the text much, but I am looking forward to it. Joy.

A Quick One & Two Questions

A quick one and two questions:

How does Carly manage to sleep next to such a loud painting?

How did she manage to so artfully arrange the blanket to mirror the form in the painting located near her right ear, which mimics the form of her right ear?
