Busy year. Worked slow and steady for much of it.
Took a short break, Paris and Vienna.
Fantastic architecture. History.
Great art at Versailles, the Louvre, the Albertina, and the Leopold… Visited Norte Dame Cathedral, the Arc of Triomphe, and the Sacre Coer.
Ancient history, Renaissance, Baroque, Spanish, Modern, American…Bosch, Durer, Goya, Klimpt, Rothko, Cassatt, Kollowitz, Keifer…
Experienced great objects.
The artist has purpose and place. Perhaps the artist exposes purpose and place. Creates purpose and place.
What does the artist do? And why does he or she do it? Is it important? Is it necessary? Here, now?
Taking some time to think about this, again.
