Callahan at the MFA Boston

We went to see the Callahan show of about 50 pictures at the MFA yesterday.  It was a perfect way to close out (visually) 2009.  Becky suggested that Callahan had quite an influence on my work: GUILTY.  A couple of pictures stood out: a woman on the street in Chicago in a very light green coat and hat probably from the early 50s; a four panel grid of tree limbs looking up form Atlanta in 1993.  Marvelous pictures.  Yes, Harry was (remains) quite an influence.
