An artful weekend that included modern art and a tattoo. I visited the Peninsula Fine Arts Center over the weekend. My favorite exhibit was the Goode collection of modern American prints. I was introduced to the work of artists, Whitfield Lovell and Alex Katz. I was so happy to meet those pieces! Even though Goya, Warhol, and Dali were right down the hall, Lovell and Katz grabbed my attention and kept me for a while. Below, in order... Two works by Whitfield Lovell (crayon on paper and charcoal on wood). Lovell is now a favorite artist of mine. He draws inspiration from history and works with found materials such as wood and odds and ends found at antique shops and flea markets. I read that he has an appreciation for all things with a past and is a passionate collector. Next are two silkscreens by Alex Katz. I was drawn to his combination of bright color and simplicity. Last is my new tattoo. It is a simple arrow based on an old weather vane. I had a lovely weekend and hope that you did too.
