Quote of the Week – July 19, 2010

"When you start working, everybody is in your studio -- your past, your friends, your enemies, the art world, your ancestors, your inner critic, and above all, your own ideas -- all are there.  But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left, completely, gloriously alone.  Then if you're lucky, even you leave."

--Philip Guston quoting John Cage in The Artist's Mentor, by Ian Jackman
