Diebenkorn Doorway

Diebenkorn Doorway
Oil on Masonite
The very first thing I did this morning having returned last night from Maine was to go to the De Young Museum to see "Diebenkorn, The Berkeley Years." What a show. Inspiring and up lifting.  Big. Beautiful. Small. Sweet. I could have just looked at color. Or. I could have just looked at composition. Or. I could have just looked and looked and looked some more. And the people. One woman dressed in diagonal stripes milled around looking like she had walked out of one of the paintings. If only photographs were allowed. It would have kept me going for years. Put on your yellow trousers and lavender t-shirt and get there. The show ends September 29.
