agnes martin @ guggenheim

i wasn't very familiar with agnes martin before seeing the show at the guggenheim. her simple style manages to conjure what she calls "abstract emotions" - happiness, love and experiences of innocence, freedom, beauty and perfection. i would study the works in great detail despite its lack of composition. it sent me on a zen-like state on this first day of 2017. something to keep with me for the rest of the year. 

loving love | gratitude | blessings


agnes said of her work, "i would like [my pictures] to represent beauty, innocence and happiness. i would like them all to represent that. exaltation."

30 books!

i did it! it was close and completed the goodreads challenge 2 years running. i took a hiatus in 2014, but completed for 2011, 2012 and 2013. it seems like as years pass it's been harder and harder. i think much harder this year without a commute where i have time to read. it's hard to read and bike. ;)
so i have carved out time to read instead of watch tv. this is the major detriment to my reading in all honesty. i really need to curtail the screen time. tv and my smart phone.  i knew that would happen.
