" new york, times square " . . . jacques le tord 1947

" new york, times square "  1947,
the year of the biggest snow blizzard NYC recorded.
In this painting of my father's it looks as if the sky turned a curious red
was it december 25th, 1947?
Because December 26 & 27th of 1947 Central Park
was blanketed in a whopping 26.4" of snow according NYC. gov
"the blizzard of 1947 still holds rank as the biggest snowstorm in New York City history."
- jacques le tord, peintre ; école lyonnaise. 1911-1952
- huile sur toile

le petit tramway . . . jacques le tord 1946

"le petit tramway" passait avenue du maréchal foch, à lyon.
mon père jacques le tord l'a peint un jour
où il roulait dans la neige, sous nos fenêtres.
petite et beaucoup plus tard, je me souviens même
avoir voyagé dans le ptit tram. . .

painting studies . . .




from drawings to paintings it takes forever 
to figure out where to go. . . what seems to be endless waiting
is a slipt-second in time. . . enough for a shadow to become
light. . . color does it all. . .
