If my energy could even be half of the energy of the great artists of today and yesterday my life would be incredibly blessed. Recently in Charlotte at the Bechtler Museum I tuned into the wonderful energies of Niki De Saint Phalle. I especially liked the action expressionism of her earlier relief works. I think my […]
