Sometimes, when I find one of these pictures,
I know immediately the artist whose work I'm reminded of.
Other times, I have to set it aside a bit, think about
and look for it.
It took me a bit, but when I looked up the work
of Barnett Newman, saw the bold stripe or two against
a field of color, or the one stripe with texture,
much like the pavement in these photos,
I knew I'd found my guy.
Here is one of Newman's works, Untitled, done in 1946,
ink and brush on paper. This drawing is on the
website for a gallery that handles a lot of his work.
