Gerhard Richter.

Am loving Gerhard Richter's paintings at the moment. Bursts of colour, smudgy, layered, richly thick, velvety colour. I've had the pleasure of being surrounded by a handful of his paintings in a room and they are commanding and intense. Took my breath away!

(Do you see a sunrise or a sunset?)

This one (above) was inspired by 9/11

(Do you see a waterfall like me?)

(Do you feel the autumn and a far-away lake?)

  1. Beautiful choices! Richter is one of my favorite artists. I'd never seen the 9/11 one, and it's really incredible.
