John Wilson at the Danforth Museum of Art, January 2013

It is a really gloomy day today here in Boston. Yet taking a short drive out to Framingham, Ma really lifted my spirits. The art work of John Wilson, a black man still working at age 90, has several watercolor and gouache works on paper in the museum. His work rivals anyone’s work hanging in the MOMA. The first wall on the left, I said “wow” these look like Picasso’s then it transitioned into Fernand Leger paintings. Leger was a French painter and sculptor whom I had written about and made art pieces like while in college. Our assignment was to copy a great artist.
This artist, John Wilson, really made my day. I especially fell in love with the large black portraits and the bronze head of Martin Luther King.
Well worth a visit to this museum

About alwaysgail photography by Gail Fischer

I am a photographer who loves to explore everywhere and everything. The journey began in Covington, KY where all the back alleys were sources of great places of visual imagery. After college the desert outside of Tucson, AZ became my place to watch sunsets and seek solitude. Later, NYC was totally exciting and the years there led to a career as a shooter.
