Too Close, Even for Chuck

Too Close, Even for Chuck

Leica at the Met in front of a Chuck Close painting. The three I posted today had a touch of humor in it. Hope you enjoyed it.

The painting above is incredible when you see it at the museum. I’ve been a fan of Chuck Close and saw his show here at SFMOMA where he had a handful of very large self portraits that were absolutely stunning. The size, texture and technique were out of this world. Once you see a Chuck Close painting up close, you won’t forget his work.

POTD: Large Mark Pastel. 1978 by Chuck Close of course!
