Clyfford Still Museum --- WOW!

I took a break. Now I am BACK.
is nothing less than a marvelous model for what a single-artist museum can be. Virtually every aspect of it is designed to maximize a visitor's encounter with Still's often riveting art. - See more at: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2011/11/art-review-denvers-clyfford-still-museum.html#sthash.KuoD8TPN.dpuf

Sometimes the Internet is simply too much. I needed to dial back the amount of time I had been spending on Facebook, Blogger, and the like. You know what: I didn't really miss much. 

BUT

It is now time to re-focus on my painting and photography goings on. 

One of the art highlights of my summer was my visit to the Clyfford Still Museum  WOW! A must see for anyone that loves abstract art. The years of waiting for it to open was worth it. 

The museum is incredible. And it is, as the LA Times wrote,

    I may never ever be in Denver or San Francisco or any of the many places that other people live or visit or work at - but I am thankful for the glimpse that you have given me here of what you have seen at this Museum - it is interesting for sure -

    however - I am also wondering if you remember at all our few moments together at MOMA in New York - or any of the time that you spent in New York -

    I know that you were going to Art Hampton - after I saw you that day at the MOMA - and I went to Art Hampton last summer - but I think that what was at Art Hampton was nothing compared to what is in New York City every single day -

  2. Hi Walter --- Yes, the every day in NYC is beyond compare! Art Hampton was OK ... but nothing extra ordinary. And I do remember spending part of the day at MOMA - my favorite museum by the way - with you and Mike. I don't think any other city really can beat NYC. My last visit was back in 2011 while I was doing by second artist residency there. Thanks for the comment!

  4. It's a great experience to visit this museum. I found it very inspiring... the only thing missing in your photos is a sense of scale. The works are HUGE!

    1. Yes, they are HUGE. A bit difficult to convey, which is why it is best to visit the museum. It's a great experience, isn't it.
