"It’s always Boogie Street: Boogie Street in the monastery, Boogie Street on Times Square. You don’t get away from it, No one masters the heart. The heart continues to cook like [a] shish kebab in everybody’s breast, bubbling and dripping, and no one – no one – can escape." Leonard Cohenquoted in Look Who’s Back at 67: Gentle Leonard Cohen by Frank DiGiacomo (New York Observer, Oct 15, 2001) Happy New Year to all my Reader!
Welcome to my blog. I'm a professional artist whose work is mainly derived from the study of towns and cities. For many years I've worked mainly in oil paint, but am trying my hand with acrylics at present. I'm still very much a figurative painter aiming at some kind of modern representation. I believe in the continuing value of painting and follow in its long and honourable tradition.
For one year only, I'm posting my Dad's Diary entries from 1947, the year I was born.
