Artist of my Dreams

Elizabeth Peyton's art makes me tear up with happiness. When she had the exhibit at the New Museum I might have gone once a week (thanks to Thursday evening's free admission) and each time I was overwhelmed with joy.

Anyone who paints Jarvis Cocker
AND Mad King Ludwig is my dream.

Or recognizes that Eminem is just as sexy
as Brett Anderson.

And who chooses my favorite photo of Frida to paint.

Not to mention, when she is asked to do a still life
it includes poppies and Patti Smith.

I tell you, this woman is a dream, dream, dream.

Now if she'd only get started on that portrait
of Prince I will be complete.
