Chicago art

Just got back from a most wonderful trip to Chicago with the boyfriend : )
I love the wall murals there. The creativity and time that goes into these life size pictures is beautiful! 
Painting has been on my mind recently. We visited the modern wing of the Chicago Art Institute while we were there and I discovered a few things about myself.
-I love contemporary art-especially the conceptual pieces
-Cy Twombly's later paintings inspire me to get out the brushes and inks and oils

I almost couldn't get enough of Twombly's "The Natural World" ('00-'07) that is currently being showed. Large canvas paintings of abstract and natural forms of flowers in the most exquisite colors.
These photos don't do them justice!
