Artistic Inspiration

A Richard Diebenkorn show has been in SF and Palm Springs this year.  I bought the catalogue even though I did not make the real thing.  I wish I could see the paintings at their full size.

Below, are two acrylic paintings by Eugene’s Adam Grosowski whose work is very strong.  They seem Diebenkorn inspired.  I have included two of Diebenkorn’s interiors with landscape so you can compare.  All the paintings are very large.

I have been looking at Diebenkorn’s still life paintings.  I did the Orange Pepper and Knife, inspired by his Tomato and Knife.  I love how is knife slashes across the painting and the painterly quality of the impressionistic tomatoes.

    Scrummy color Kate! I feel like picking up your sliced pepper and taking a bite. I always enjoy seeing other artists inspiration. Both Diebenkorn & Grosowski were unknown to me. Thanks for bringing them to light!
