Some painters are always with us...

My daughter Meg and I went to the National Gallery to see the Jasper Johns show. It was everything it's advertised to be. A model of both restraint and completism. Right on target, if you will.

On our way to the section of the museum where the exhibit was displayed, we passed a massive Motherwell. I thought of how deKooning once said, roughly, "Some painters are always with me. Picasso is one."

Me too. Likewise Motherwell.

I call it "Elegy to the Spanish Republic (bread, lunchmeat and pepper jack) 2007."
