“I believe it was John Cage who once told me, ‘When you start working, everybody is in your studio- the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas- all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you’re lucky, even you leave.'” — Philip Guston

  1. Ah, I just love that thought and that and shot. The quote will resonate with anyone who pursues an art and hopes to meditate in it and sometimes, channel the divine. Having just returned from Croatia, where the fish markets are full of sardines, and every day I watched plates piled high with fresh grilled sardines, sea bass, calamari and scampi, the image goes right to the scents, sights and smells that invoke My Sea Mind, a new existence that I can now invoke anywhere, and often recognizes the voice of this blog.
