"Road before the Mountains, Sainte-Victoire"
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg
Just made the decision to keep my financial life simple and not take on the added weight of paying for a studio. Perhaps later in the year. For now, the outdoors will be my studio and I will be companioned by my trusted guides: Cezanne, Degas, Pisarro, Van Gogh, Diebenkorn, Thiebaud, Hawthorne, Hockney, Nell Blaine, Jankowski, Kline, Balthus, Bonnard and Joan Mitchell. what? no Monet? no Monet: his color is too sweet, his surfaces dense and no speed of the brush.
