Jesus, Bacon(Francis, not pig),Rembrandt, Vangogh. I paint I stop thinking...Vincent.
Influence Pt: 1
Vangogh painted thick and quick and in one sitting. Gauguin critic on his paintings. Today I painted a portrait of Bacon. I was struck by the image I used as my source material. I enjoy the Soutine influence. I am starting to see in paint again the smell of my studio, the feel of my brush against the surface. I am in control but the paint is my muse.
