VERY cool!

i love the quotes you put up :) might have to stop by and do a read!

Thanks Laura and Jessie. And Jessie, the letters are filled with great advice that transfers easily from painting to writing. He describes his paintings in such a way that makes it clear that he knew exactly what he was doing and what he hoped to achieve. Genius. Thanks for stopping by!

Great to hear about this...

Great advice indeed (except for the "fucking" thing)...

Wow!! Amazing to see these with the drawings-- Thanks for the link! Lots to explore--

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
