An iPad sketch of a man gazing at the dreamy Joan Mitchell abstract landscape painting, Minnesota (1980), at the exhibit, “Joan Mitchell: I carry my landscapes around with me,” at David Zwirner gallery. Part of my on going series on looking at art.
“I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me – and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves me with.”
