Today Dec, 27 2011 Helen Frankenthaler, one of my favorite American abstract artists passed away at the age of 83. I always loved her expressive use of color and often find my own work very much influenced by her forms and techniques.

Helen is one of the recognizable first great American Female artists, and in my eyes one who’s work is both timeless in style and sensibility. Jewish and born in New York City, I feel a special connection to her and her work.

    Wow! Great story!

    Love the selection of candid photographs…makes me remember what it was like to be an abstract expressionist painter in the 50’s, or at least, it makes me feel like it does…that’s what I love! Pure magic.
