My New Love

I am taking an art appreciation class this semester. Last weekend we went on a field trip to the local art museum to see a Georgia O'Keefe exhibit. Great stuff! I actually got to see a Pablo Picasso in person. I know to some people no big deal but it was amazing to me. But the thing that I found the most amazing was an artist named Hans Hoffman. I love his work. They only had one at the show this weekend but it was beautiful. I could have sat and looked at it for hours. I am including two other works I have found in recent days that I like also. The first one is called The Garden and the second one is called Fantasia. What do you all think?

Normally I'm an impressionist fan, and anything more abstract than Paul Klee loses me. But I liked the colors in these. I clicked away and came back a couple of times and saw something different every time. If I could see them in person, you might have a convert.

The thing about these is you have to see them in person because he sometimes uses thick almost chunks of paint in places. I love his stuff. Just wish I could afford to own one...:)

i've only been to the art gallery here a few times, but when i go, it's amazing to just stand in front of a painting and look at each brush stroke, there's something about it that a photo can't capture.

Pretty neat. I like looking into the paintings to see the images contained within.

Hans Hoffman is amazing. These are wonderful paintings to gaze at in the fall! And oh if we could all afford one of these... (sigh)
