Notes to myself on beginning a painting

  1. attempt what is not certain. Certainty may or may not come later. It may then be a valuable delusion.
  2. The pretty, initial position which falls short of completeness is not to be valued - except as a stimulus for further moves.
  3. Do search. But in order to find other than what is searched for.
  4. Use and respond to the initial fresh qualities but consider them absolutely expendable.
  5. Dont 'discover' a subject - of any kind.
  6. Somehow don't be bored - but if you must, use it in action. Use its destructive potential.
  7. Mistakes can't be erased but they move you from your present position.
  8. Keep thinking about Polyanna.
  9. Tolerate chaos.
  10. Be careful only in a perverse way.
-R Diebenkorn

(as promised- my favorite quote of all times...) 

Photos from the non-salon

This was a wonderful opportunity to talk about my work and show my recent paintings in a beautiful environment. 
Doniece and Sadik are the most graceful hosts and their home is certainly a perfect place to view art about San Francisco- in San Francisco.

It was amazing how many people came, I did not expect this at all.

So thank you.
