We have not left home in a while. We need a good reason to do so and the first leg of the Guston retrospective, ”Now,” is better than good.
Peggi booked an expensive but relatively cheap hotel room near the Boston Common and we put our car in a garage for three days. The clerk behind the check-in desk started upselling us immediately asking if we realized the room was not much bigger than the queen-sized bed and it did not have a view. We did know that, but for forty dollars more a night we have a bigger room on the twelfth floor with a view of the city.
The painting in our room looks better without my glasses but the grey sky cityscape is spectacular..
