Joan Mitchell "Salut Tom"

The largest painting artist Jay Rolfe saw at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC is by Joan Mitchell and titled "Salut Tom" painted in 1979 in Vetheuil, France where she was living at the time. It's a huge 4 panel painting with the panels joined together, although the 4 panels don't match at the edges. The colors and design do evoke similar feelings. The bright colors are appealing. Mitchell passed away in 1992.

"Salut Tom" owned and exhibited by the Corcoran Gallery is the photo of the day today. The painting was so large that 3 images taken from the middle of the opposite wall had to be joined together to create this photo which, as a result, has a fish-eye look.

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's signature style, his innovative Pop Art 3-D paintings, on his website at
