Meanwhile I am halfway through the alphabet. And just the fact that those letters hang over my head each day seems to always guide my awareness with regard to my explorations. For example, today I was cleaning out a box of paperbacks and came across one of John D. MacDonald's thrillers, this one titled, A Tan and Sandy Silence. Beginning in the sixties, MacDonald wrote a series of 21 books featuring the character Travis McGee and each one was titled according to a different color. Perhaps not great literature, but I think the writing is pretty good. So I think I will read one today--it will help me procrastinate with regard to my painting.
I found this interesting graphic:
"In the 'Nude Descending a Staircase,' I wanted to create a static image of movement: movement is an abstraction, a deduction articulated within the painting, without our knowing if a real person is or isn't descending an equally real staircase."--Marcel Duchamp
