It’s gone now

I started this painting on Sunday, March 31. Nothing like a deadline to focus the mind and eye. Picasso’s Figure Decoupee with Bernar Venet’s Two Indeterminate Lines in the background, were removed days later for a renovation of the plaza. (In front of Dewey Library at MIT) The weather was cold, with none of the glorious promised Spring temperatures. I wore gloves with the tips of the fingers cut off, but the moment the sun slipped behind the building, it was too cold for me. I completed the painting (12 inches square oil on stretched canvas) in the studio from a photo.

On Wednesday the sculpture was removed for storage and on Saturday the trees came down. Thanks Alex for the photo.

Venet’s work has been called Curly Fries by Amy, so I guess my painting is Steak and Fries. But to learn more about the art work at MIT see this interactive map and on this photo tour.
