1. I had every intention of taking lots of pictures of famous and obscure Picassos and Matisses and posting them to my blog, but photos were not permitted.
While waiting the 2 hours to get into show I found a Jasper Johns (gray) and a Clifford Still (black). To look at these two paintings and know nothing of the intentions of the artists', one could assume ( rightly or wrongly) they were the same. The only difference is that one is gray and the other black. The are both encaustic paintings on canvas. Except for one difference - Johns painted on the "back" of his canvas.
2. There I said it : Rauschenberg. On a separate topic - What is it with the Germans and consonants?
3. Lastly, the the best piece I saw all day. My Blog, My opinion. It's a gazillion staples on a phone pole in Haight Asbury. Man! that thing was/is rich. A phone pole - yes!

Here are some examples of our latest efforts at the J.C.. Laurie and I finished the class this week. Many thanks to Claire Cotts. She shared her love of art and created a space where effort and talent was valued and encouraged. Thanks, also, to all that left feedback. We might have a show in the front room - free snacks. I think would like to continue working on portraits so if anyone is interested in sitting for me let me know.
