Weekend in San Francisco

Took a quick trip up to San Francisco this weekend; very brief, but packed full of activity. I was particularly excited to visit SF MOMA to see the Cindy Sherman show, which was wonderful. After perusing her retrospective, I found myself wandering through the other galleries, and feeling drawn towards pieces where the artist used very wild, frantic mark making techniques. I captured small samples of two of my favorites, the one on the left is by Julie Mehretu, and on the right is Cy Twombly. I hope to harness some of this loose and excitable energy in my new textile prints, and I feel inspired to return to my work with fresh eyes this week.
