Today at work while preparing for a new unit for my art 3 class, I was reminded of the lovely work of Abstract Expressionist painter, Richard Diebenkorn.  Like some of my other favorite painters; Schiele, Freud, and Neel; his juxtaposition of linear elements with washes of color just makes me so happy.  I also love the complete breakdown from aerial landscapes all the way to angular color field paintings.  There's such a lovely evolution, almost decay, of his style throughout his work that is really just beautiful.  Makes me feel all fuzzy and inspired, which is a good thing considering all of the new projects we are about to be jumping into.  (more on those soon!)
