It took us 40 years to make our pilgrimage to Washington to see Robert Motherwells' Reconciliation Elegy, a work we both have longed to see in the flesh. Washington's museums are wonderful and spectular and free. And my favourite was the East Wing of The Museum of Art; an elegant space, beautifully curated, that made my heart sing. Below are some of my favourites.
Motherwell, Robert: American, 1915 - 1991. Reconciliation Elegy; 1978: acrylic on canvas: overall: 304.8 x 924.2 cm (120 x 363 7/8 in.

Yesterday while visiting friends we walked part of their land. It was glorious; the light, the smell of fall with pine needles underfoot, leaves drifting down, milk weed blowing open its' pods, a golden blaze of glory.

I seem to be just a bit obsessed lately, now up to 57 of these maquettes. Distraction therapy from the American election?
