no. 1 - "I Can Paint Gerhard Richter Style"

This painting was made for my husband Jeffrey, for his Valentine's Day. One winter-y day we went to see Gerhard Richter show in Manhattan. Some of his paintings seemed so easy to paint, while others intrigued me. I stood in front of one and I told my husband, who was standing next to me, "I can do something similar. This is a piece of cake." He laughed and said "Sure," and proceeded onto another piece. Now mind you, I do not go to see paintings/galleries/museums often, nor I had enough time to paint that much (although I love to paint). But when I go to see art in galleries or museums I come close to any painting and look how it could possibly be done. And then I usually paint it in my head.

So after this show I decided that I will pay a visit to a local art store and paint one painting for my husband that would be influenced by Gerhard Richter's paintings, which my husband so much admires.

My husband loves his painting. (NFS).
