Abbott Burns, Moondance #2, 1982, oil, 42 × 54 inches.

The painting gets there by strokes forgetting faster about the eye/hand relationship. “Oh, that’s cars! And that’s almost skeletons!” Themes without the neon logo arrow of the “higher mind” illuminating the Great White Way of Culture. What you see is what you get. And remember.
