Billy Still Stands Tall
April 9, 2014
One of the other paintings I saw in Santa Fe last week that knocked my socks off was this gouache by a master print-maker:
Gustave Baumann's brilliance: so simple, so dramatic, so stunning.
When I see brilliance like this it is so humbling. I realize in a flash what a slacker I am, how challenged I am, how far there is to go. But I keep trying.
