#wow / How a Gray Painting Can Break Your Heart.

I have always admired the work of Jasper Johns, but even more so after reading this story behind one of his works, “In Memory of My Feelings — Frank O’Hara.”

Beneath that gray are feelings that are irrepressible, uncontainable. And in this one painting, Johns shows how your one little life can become art that matters.

I highly recommend taking ten minutes to yourself—in an environment with no distractions—and digest this story.
