The drawing I did this past weekend, and the oil painting I completed yesterday. Both 11x14.
I have spent the last couple weeks with Willem De Kooning. Where I am in the biography, he is now past being the successful "king" of the action painters. I love his work, but his lifestyle was very demanding for those who loved him, especially after the late 1950's. Interesting parallels with the other Dutchman, Van Gogh. Both would not have become who they did become without the destructive influence of their mothers.
