What better way to tell you about Richard Diebenkorn than telling you a story through a painting? Diebenkorn’s “Ocean Park” series was completed during the 60s, 70s and 80s by this most illustrious artist. Composition is (arguably) everything in a two dimensional work of art and he demonstrated his mastery of it by arranging shapes, colors and lines to create his awesome paintings. I think of him as a painter’s painter. If you squint really hard and turn your head sideways and take a giant swig of mescal you’ll catch a fleeting glimpse of his spirit and influence in this homage.
