The all-over-the-place aesthetic

But I must still hold to my own unspare, flabby, uncool, complicated, thick-with-atmosphere, all-over-the-place aesthetic and life-path!  We can't please them all!

The main thing

The main thing is that you don’t have to try, although it takes a few decades of trying before you discover that.

Your job

As you grow older, it dawns on you that you are yourself – that your job is not to force yourself into a style but to do what you want.

Forgetting oneself

‘The whole business of painting is very much to do with forgetting oneself and being able to act instinctively'

Burning woman

Nearly finished

The Husband burns his wife for fear that she will die of cold.

 A couple of Burning Woman heads. In the middle a picture, a study or sketch, I suppose, still in progress, that I thought I would call "The Husband burns his wife for fear that she will die of cold.", but I think I prefer "Burning Woman."
I have a series planned. Who knows if anything will come of it.
