Today I painted in a large studio all day. Worked on four paintings, one small gouache from a model, two from a previous series, and one trial for a new series of white paintings. It was good at the end of the day to sit in front of all these paintings and look at them; the studio is very large and can handle multiple works. I’m realizing I need a place to work, not just in my garage or my classrooms. If I had a studio I could look at multiples, comparing and making critical judgments. I need to address this.
East Hampton itself is moneyed. And all white. When to breakfast and an omelet cost $16, cup of coffee $4. And I saw three men in the space of 20 minutes in pink shirts.
