oh, cy..

what have you done.

View of the The Louvre's ceiling by Cy Twombly

as if i didn't need another reason to go to paris. this is the newest work by cy twombly at the musee du louvre. i think it's great. and i'm preeetty sure i need to see it in person.

i loved his series cy twombly: the natural world, selected works of 2000 - 2007 at the new modern wing at the art institute last summer.
Cy Twombly's 'Untitled 2007'
this series just makes me happy. it's so summery and bright and energetic. i want a full sized replica of the above painting to hang in my teeny tiny apartment. i don't care if it's too big. i'll make it work somehow. even if i have to knock down a wall.

i doubt i would ever be in a foul mood if every day i woke up to his paintings.

to end, here is the quote cy incorporated into the sixth panel from the series:

ah! the peonies
for which
took off his armour
