Love, love, love @njidekaakunyilicrosby’s beautiful paintings, everyone should have a #larrypoons in their life as well as wise words of wisdom from #gerhardrichter#nathanielkahn#documentary
Looking forward to this documentary! Our Poons painting 🎨 “Rumboat” (1983) has mesmerized me daily since we acquired it. We even had to put a sign next to the work to remind gallery visitors not to touch. It’s that magnetic! #Repost @_thepriceofeverything ・・・
