Jam Pact Jelly Tite for Jamila, 1988
Jeff Donaldson
I just discovered this guy and I think I’m in love. These paintings are so stunning. Like, think of a kaleidoscope and then multiply that awesomeness by 1,000 and you have a Jeff Donaldson painting. My eyes…they are so happy.

Love the incorporation of text in this painting. Also, it’s just plain gorgeous.

You have to take time to feel sorry for yourself to be a good abstract expressionist (which I always thought was a waste of time).

Robert Rauschenberg, a personal favorite
