It's time to pack the paintings and head to a warmer clime and palette. Already feeling nostalgic. Packing up is hard to do. This rooftop image reminds me of the Barkley Hendricks show at the Studio Museum. The blanket of snow (now gone) and the sharp contrasts conjure the structural and delightful white paintings, which knocked me out. Hendricks' is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Link to Google Image search is above, and look for Hendricks' WHAT'S GOING ON? I would have liked to post it here to see with the photo, but copyright issues were unclear.
