One of my heros

I was looking through my photos to find something to post and ran across this photo I took of Rauschenberg. He has always been one of the people that had really excited me about art and I was lucky enough to be in the same space as him for a night. This photo was taken outside of PaceWildenstein gallery shortly before his death. He looked so happy at the show but also very frail.

I am so jealous. I personally enjoy his work, although I am not a huge fan of it, but his concept of art is so intriguing and inspiring. He is definitely a legend. Anyone that can erase a DeKooning drawing and show it off is the man! What an honor to see him.
I believe we have a mutual friend living in Seattle. I am also an artist and he referred me to your site. Interesting work.
