I have really been itching to get down to the Portland Art Museum lately. Right now, this painting by Francis Beacon, which is the most expensive painting ever sold (142.4 million dollars!), is on display and I am looking forward to seeing it in person. There is something about the winter time that entices me to look at beautiful pieces of art. Recently I came across New York based artist, Ethan Cook, who creates his own canvas by hand-weaving these gorgeous color-block pieces of art. I have to say one of the things that draws me in first are his beautiful and subtle color palettes, and then seeing that it's actually woven is such a fun surprise. Is there an artist that has caught your eye lately?
