Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953-66

I was blown away by Richard Diebenkorn’s abstract expressionist landscapes of Berkeley now on view at the De Young. His use of color and geographical arrangement of shapes made me feel like I was parachuting over the land. His figurative pieces featuring women looking out the glass at landscapes in contempative poses really resonated with me. Go figure. The exhibit is on display until September 29th.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
