We got to Addison Ripley Gallery a second time to see the Wolf Kahn exhibit before its last day Saturday, January 13. Kahn is 90 years old.
His beautiful, intense, evocative color so deftly handled is a joy to behold. It’s wonderful inspiration for me particularly now when I’m painting landscapes. The small but powerful painting above is one of our favorites.
I saw the exhibit the first time just after Christmas. The link is here:
I made a little pen drawing for a new motif, but it wasn’t as helpful for thinking through the forms as the pen drawings have been for other subjects. So I began a one-to-one drawing in oil pastel to use as my rehearsal. It measures 24 x 36 inches.
