Some of you may know (and probably love) the art of Richard Diebenkorn, a California artist from the 1950s into the early 80s whose work was filled with wonderful color studies, strong forms and expressive figures. At a glance, you may ask what’s the relationship between these paintings and Maine Cottage? The answer is color and form. Expressive color composed in varied amounts and simple forms – similarly to how you might compose a room. The way swathes of a color, like cool blues, can balance with a small amount of warm red, orange or yellow. The inherent role of texture, geometry and scale. This is just a sampling, so poke around online or a local bookstore and relish Diebenkorn’s rich body of work. And be inspired on a Friday afternoon.
