Menil Collection

A Wet Whirlwind Tour

The walk through the red trench warmed us up before we sprinted through the Menil and surrounding buildings.  The variation of works was very impressive.  I felt like a time traveler.  Our mission to sketch twelve works was a bit daunting since I haven't drawn in a couple of years, but I found it came back quickly.  The most exciting works for me were the Rothkos.  I have seen his darker paintings but always wanted to see his color period.  Great day in spite of the rain.
