Painting of the Day - McQueen
To splash a bit of color up on the page, I am posting this beautiful piece by Larry McQueen. The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum 'Birds in Art' series is a great series of simple inspirations to peruse now and again. The annual competition selects pieces from artists who submit an entry or two per year and honors those chosen by publishing the selections in a beautiful book each year, as well as honoring a single master artist per year. The library here at the CLO has ALL of them, going back to the early 1980's. Occasionally I steal away up to the window seat in the library and leaf through the pages, gleaning insights or simply for pure entertainment. This McQueen piece satisfies the goal of the artist as printed in the caption...the essence of the Indigo Bunting is captured beautifully.
