It never seems like you are in the studio for as long as you are. Even during a short pop in visit an hour or two can slip past you.
The new canvases I just made are now stained and ready for new paintings. The new painting for the show in September is spectacular. I look at it everyday and lately I can’t find anything I would change about it so I think it is done. Regardless, I will continue to look at it everyday,right up until it’s time for the show. It feels good to know I already won. Picasso and Guston would have to come out the grave to stop my victory and even then they would have to admit they they are in good company next to me on the wall.
When you pit yourself against your heroes there is no stopping you.
I paint for my legacy right alongside the greats.
When showtime comes they better light my sexy beast like it’s the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. I want aliens from the sky to come down and tell me in all their years of space travel they have never seen anything so great.
