Gerhard Richter: a true inspiration + a family of artists

(c) gerhard richter

I had such a great day and topped it off by watching 2 really good documentaries tonight. The first one was Gerhard Richter Painting a film by Corinna Belz. I love foreign films and for me, it can't get any better than watching an amazing artist work in his studio,listen to his thoughts in German while reading it in English. I have seen some of his earlier works in person, but to see him create his larger than life size abstracts was such a delight for me. Here are a few of my favorites...

The second documentary was called The Woodmans by C. Scott Willis. It's a very raw look into the lives of an artistic family who deals with the everyday struggles of living as an artist and how they deal with the tragic death of the extremely talented photographer, Francesca Woodman.
