some thoughts for a day out of my studio / by Philip Tarlow

11:42AM update: we're at alamosa high school. the kids you see in the gym are enrolling in elective classes. on the right, mikela with 2 of the teachers we're collaborating with and setting up a pilot of actionlab360. on row 2: woman & horse behind the high school

sunset yesterday as we drove up our driveway

we are headed to alamosa for meetings in connection with our developing educational product, actionlab360. a day away from the studio always proves productive, allowing me space to re-visit, in this case parade 23 and reflect on the direction of the entire series.. what would i like for the visitor to my november houston show to experience. to take away? what are these views from above? am i a better painter than i was 10, 20 years ago?
