Things that make me happy.

Really well-worn-in oxford cloth.

Feet dangling over water.

Stuff like this packed in a bag.

White-washed piers.

When this is my view.

Cy Twombly = Love.

I love Cy Twombly's work. Love.

I was sorry to read about his passing earlier this week at 83. I always loved seeing his paintings and drawings in museums and thinking how it was cool you could still meet him under the right circumstances or given the opportunity. I feel sad that that's no longer true.

I love that he was so different, controversial, and that he kept so to himself. I love that he say stuff like, "[after finishing a painting] I usually have to go to bed for a couple of days."

You can read this NYT article for more information (& look how cute he is!) or view many more images of his life's work here.
