Abstract Expressionist New York

Great viewing of some Abstract Expressionist paintings on at the Art Gallery of Ontario.  My buddy Dan Ryan and I went out for a viewing and lunch today and enjoyed both the show and beers.  I found myself drawn to the work of Klein.  His strong black on white graphic images resonated with me.  Afterward, flipping through a book on Klein, I was knocked out by his coloured works as well.  I also enjoyed Rothko as always, especially when looking up at his work from close range.  The colours resonated, and for me that’s always the bottom line.  80% of painting is mixing the paint.
