Textured Tuesday: Franz Kline in Speedway

Er, downtown near Christ Church Cathedral, actually.
It cracks me up. I'm walking along, minding my own business, 
when I catch sight of something out the corner of my eye.
This time it was the sidewalk. As a repair job,
it's pretty crappy, but as texture, color, shapes and line
it's pretty interesting. 

Hey, all you cee-mint
repairmen and cutters out there, whatever it is
you're drinking or eating, don't stop.

Painting, 1952. Franz Kline. Oil on Canvas.

You've got to have the most artistic public works department on the planet, Speedway.

Yes, they are. It's good they don't know how good they are, or I'd be out of suitable sidewalk and road subjects in no time at all.
