Paul Klee

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve taken up photoblogging this week. In an effort to inspire my daily posts, I am turning to my phone’s camera roll and finding a photo I took recently and using it to anchor my post.

The weekend before last, the Gotham Gal and I went up to the Met Breuer to check out a show by Kerry James Marshall that had gotten glowing reviews in the NY Times. Sadly that show was not yet open (why write about a show that is not open?). But happily, the museum had their collection of Paul Klee paintings on display.

If there is one painter I would love to own a painting by, it is Paul Klee.

The wit and wisdom in his work lines up with my taste just perfectly.

I use his “Twitter Bird” painting as the background in my Twitter profile and have been doing that for as long as I can remember.

It’s not quite like owning a Klee painting but it works for me.
