Coming Full Circle

I wrote a few weeks ago about the artists that fueled my interest in painting during the early days in college. The artists that called Berlin home, Eugen Schönebeck, Georg Baselitz, and Ranier Fetting were artists featured in a show called Berlin Art that traveled to NYC in the mid 80's, and today the works that played so importantly then, were hanging up at the Berlinische Galerie. It seems like time has past so quickly, the works looked so fresh still, so alive, I almost thought I could smell the paint on a Schönebeck work. So up for a bit here at Takt painting off the energy of seeing the very work that in so many ways sparked this entire curiosity of mine for painting and for some of the ideas that came from seeing the artists of this great city...
