Cy Twombly

Last weekend I was in Houston for the opening of ‘Her Feet Planted Firmly on the Ground’ at the Houston Center for Photography. Saturday afternoon I walked over to The Menil Collection and spent a couple hours in the Cy Twombly Gallery. The work below has been on my mind for a week now. It is not just one painting, but a series of five composed of: oil, oil/wax crayon, and water-based paint on canvas mounted on wood panel.
