Some weeks ago Shirley, Benedicte and I were at the Whitney listening raptly as Gail, a docent in the museum, walked around the galleries speaking of the artist, the times he lived in and his work. This is how I pay attention.

I wandered around in the Robert Lehman Collection at The Met, dragged a chair in front of this Matisse oil and copied it again. I think I did a better job than last year. This time I could actually see what I was copying.

I saw this painting in the background on an ad from The Met advertising their music/instrument galleries. Instead of joining the other NYC Urban Sketchers and focusing on Armor I followed the convoluted path to the music galleries, spotted the painting right away and my new improved eyeball and I enjoyed the opportunity to copy it in relative isolation. I managed to finish the whole thing (oops! Ran out of a bit of room on the bottom) in time to join up with the others in the cafeteria for lunch.

After: Fernando Botero, “Dancing In Colombia” 1980, oil on canvas.
