i am also a hockney fan. i wanted to see it this weekend--was planning a trip to LA, but the trip's been cancelled. hmph.

Lucky Girl. Hockney is really one of my favorites...if I were still in LA I would have been there.

Can you tell I'm Canadian. When I started reading your post, I thought you said "hockey." Couldn't figure out what you were talking about!

Now I see where I went wrong. I love his stuff too, but then I'm a sucker for bold colours.

oh he is amazing. i have loved his work since i was little sitting in my fathers studio looking at his art books. i love the paintings of his pool perspectives.

i would love to see those in person.
