My favorite piece in the museum: big and so amazingly bright. You’d think the canvas was illuminated from the wall. Goldfish and Autumn Leaves by Janet Fish, 1979-80. (Thanks for the update, Sarah!)
I love all that sketch phase-crossed-with-production stuff. Store Front (Project) by Christo (Christo Javacheff), 1935.
It seems perfectly foolish to attempt to paint frosting with anything other than oils. Lunch Table by Wayne Thiebaud, 1920.
I’m such a nut for Joseph Cornell, and it’s no surprise. I love ornate things, I love little things, and Cornell makes really ornate things with lots of little things, so there you go. Untitled (Constellation) by Joseph Cornell, 1957-59.
A-and, of course, the Rodin sculpture garden. Hey honey, lemme get a picture of you at the Gates of Hell! (Note the hongbao peeking out of his shirt pocket.)
New start, good art. It was a good day to look forward to a new moon.
