Artist gone to Cape Cod...

I'm laptopping from a coffee shop on Cape Cod and before you think I'm a jet setter you should know I'm here on business...*snicker. I'm dropping off some dinghy paintings to a gallery in Wellfleet and meeting with some gallery owners to discuss the possibility of representation.

I'll be back on Friday eve.

All my best to you.

A wonderful painting is the result of the feeling in your fingers. If you have the feeling of the thickness of the ink in your brush, the painting is already there before you paint. When you dip your brush into the ink you already know the result of your drawing, or else you cannot paint. So before you do something, "being" is there, the result is there. Even though you look as if you were sitting quietly, all your activity, past and present, is included, and the result of your sitting is also already there. - D.T. Suzuki

Very Eastern and Zen-like, thanks for the quote. for me this is a gentle reminder to slow down and think before I make my marks on the surface.
