My Fairy Godfather
Style: Abstract Expressionism. Genre: abstract painting.
Tonight it occurred to me that what I really wanted Diebenkorn to be was my Godfather: any male sponsor or guardian; a person who is regarded as the originator or principal shaper of a school of thought, art form. This was closer, but then I noticed that there was a definition for a Fairy Godfather off to the side. This is what I found when I clicked it: a kindly sponsor or guardian; a fairy-tale character who uses magical powers to help a heroine.
Bingo! Now this is what I need as I toil away in my studio, a kindly guardian with magical powers. Thank you Richard Diebenkorn.
