    Thank you Jan. I am learning more about art from your blog. I never heard of Helen Frankenthaler. I really dig her art! She must be interested in Japanese ukiyo-e since she created one. My husband and I purchased two 19th-century ukiyo-e the first time I traveled to Japan in 1987. We love the form whether it is an old woodblock or a modern one.
