A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

Just a quickie post to say I'm off to see the biennial at the Whitney. It's been an all art week. Should have lots of opinions to post tomorrow. The Biennial is nothing if not stimulating. In the meantime I confess to not working (although I did paint on Friday.)
Today's thought is about Petunia, a goose who thought knowledge could be acquired just by carrying some books around. I share with you my current Petunia stack. Until read them I always feel like a goose.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.

New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
