Inspiration Fridays

Cy Twombly - April 25, 1928 – July 5, 2011

This week I was sad to hear about the passing of American artist Cy Twombly.  I loved the energy and sense of urgency in his work and his use of text inspired a few projects of mine in my university days.

I would like to celebrate his work by sharing some of my favorite artworks of his with you all.

Apollo and the Artist, 1975
