James O'Shea

James O'Shea, Evening Mail, 24 x 24, 2008

I love this work of James O'Shea.  He is clearly very serious in his pursuit of color and composition (essentially the pursuit of a successful painting) but the work has a definite sense of humor or joy for the world that strikes me.  They seem to be friends with so many of my favorite artists: Elisabeth Cummings, Diebenkorn, Amy Sillman, Kimura and yet they are their own breed.  Just beautiful to look at on this dreary Philadelphia morning.
