I love the French Impressionists, Mondrian, 17th Century Dutch, Pollock, Miro, Mondrian, Gainsborough, Singer Sargent, Chuck Close, Duchamp, Picasso, Braque, Seurat, Thiebaud, Goya, Hockney, Miroslav Sasek (Illustrator), and on and on……

Like music, I’m a fan of myriad genres and styles. But for paintings that really move me emotionally, Rothko gets me every time.

I'll share two.

Van Gogh, Starry Night Over the Rhone. When my son was born we did his room up in a suns-moons-and-stars theme and we put a poster of this painting on the wall. Flash forward 18 years, he's graduated from high school and we're on a pre-college vacation in Paris. I'm in the Musee d'Orsay and I come around a corner and there's the actual painting, clear as life and twice as big. I was so startled to see it I didn't even think to take a picture of it.

Rene Magritte, The Dominion of Light. Another painting I've seen in person, this one is in the Menil Gallery in Houston. Might be better known among musicians for inspiring the cover art for Jackson Browne's Late for the Sky.
