Great day today I rejoined the Whitney and saw some great shows.Im not a huge Laura Owen's fan but I like the way she works and thinks about life and artthere's a couple friends the show made me think of, there's alot there about painting and image makingvery like David Hockney. Though her actual use of paint doesn't appeal to me. The collection at the Whitney is so greatit was good to see the old favorites I keep getting knocked out by early Alex Katz paintings. The thing that gets me is the absolute looseness and dead on accuracy. I want that.
