R.I.P. Cy Twombly 1928 - 2011

 Cy Twombly, American painter, and personal hero died in Rome yesterday at the age of 83.

From his Obiturary:
Each line he made, he said, was “the actual experience” of making the line, adding: “It does not illustrate. It is the sensation of its own realization.” Years later, he described this more plainly. “It’s more like I’m having an experience than making a picture,” he said.
