Happy Valentine’s Day!
Drawing is not an exercise.
Exercise is sitting on a stationary bicycle and going nowhere.
Drawing is being on a bicycle and taking a journey.
For me to succeed in drawing, I must go fast and arrive somewhere.
The quest is to keep the thing alive…

Jim Dine’s Two Big Black Hearts, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts
One of my very favorite Jim Dine works of art is the Twin Red Hearts, located at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The Paul Lowry photo taken in the snow is beautiful and the perfect image for your February Valentines!

Birth of Pop Art
In 1962 Jim Dine’s (1935- ) work was included, along with Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Dowd, Philip Hefferton, Joe Goode, Edward Ruscha, and Wayne Thiebaud in the historically important and ground-breaking New Paintings of Common Objects curated by Walter Hopps at the Norton Simon Museum. This exhibition is historically considered one of the first Pop Art exhibitions in America. – wiki
