A Bigger Hero

When Cy Twombly passed, I refrained from saying anything and just listened and looked as many, more-informed people expounded on his career and works. Last week I stumbled across a Blog called FOR PILAR that had photos of Cy Twombly at his home in Rome. So I thought I'd pass them along. Seeing his work in this context makes so much sense.

It was several years ago, that I discovered his work and was overwhelmed with feelings of admiration, awe, surprise, excitement, inspiration; the list goes on and I'm sure you get the picture. At the same time, I thought, "what gaul !"; to paint exactly as you please. This man became my hero.
