Spent a few intense hours at MoMA yesterday with Benedicte and Shirley. I was uncertain about the exhibition “Francis Picabia: Our Heads Are Round So Our Thoughts Can Change Direction”. Who knew? It was beautiful, varied, interesting and surprising. The three of us spent time sketching. I couldn’t resist copying Picabia’s portrait of Gertrude Stein. I know you all remember my copy of Picasso’s portrait of her a few months ago.

This painting was larger than life size. The “dots” represent bullet holes. Finngr Pro doesn’t allow for subtle bullet hole details. People just walked around me and no one was the slightest bit curious. Funny how that happens. A few weeks ago, while sketching in The Baltimore Museum of Art, I was inundated by questions from other artists. Inundated. No exaggeration.
