MOMA on a Thursday

The oil by Pavel Tchelitchew, Hide-and-Seek, is reported to be the most popular painting at MOMA. I first saw it way back in high school and was mesmerized by it. In my mind I have always referred to it as the tree of life painting. Some art you carry with you forever. Some art you look at and shrug. Telling my youngest, see if you can find a link in your mind, something evoked, something sparked be it good or bad. Like poetry, you don't have to understand it, you just have to be open to what it might bring to you. A wonderful day with my two boys.
