Is Your Mother Well? 36 x 36.

 

 

Homage to the abstract expressionist artist Robert Motherwell. My painting is a take on his painting German Line No. 6 which he painted in 1972. He used a cigarette pack in the center of the painting; I used a ticket stub from a concert i attended while on acid in the 1970s. Motherwell hung out with Pollock, Rothko, Tanguy, and other wild painters from the 50s and 60s. He also had a stormy marriage to the great Helen Frankenthaler.
