David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition

I had the pleasure of seeing the David Hockney exhibit at the De Young Museum this week. It blow me away. Prior to this, I had only seen some of his earlier photo collages. The exhibit is of his most recent work over the last 10 years after he moved from Southern California back in England after living away from his homeland for decades. My favorite paintings were multiple panel large-scale landscapes of forests and the countryside. His use of color and the size of each work brings the viewer into his world of seasons changing, which he had not seen for so many years. It felt like walking through a color-filled forest.

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.
