Philip Guston - "The Ocean" @ San Antonio Museum of Art

This is a personal favorite painting. If I had to "guesstimate" the dimensions, it would roughly be 8'x10'. It's not Guston's "Greatest" Painting just a fan f*ckintastic "Transition" Painting from his "Abstract" Works to his "Figurative Cartoon" Paintings *PLUS* it's hidden away at a "Satellite Museum" not one of the Major Tx. Museums in either Houston or Dallas. Bonus Points.

Note: The Joey Ramone Solo album is surprisingly good. It's a mixture of "generic" hard rock mixed with "punkish" roots and lyrically, it is smart... not "dumb" in the Ramones kind of way. Just one qualm re: Joey Ramone ... Ya Know? Think track 10 should've been a 7"single & not included on album. Merry Xmas indeed. Also prolly would've been *the* top 40 hit he always desired if he included a "killer" b-side too. Just sayin'.
