stretching new canvas / philip's new painting / by Philip Tarlow

3:53 PM: today was not a painting day. i had a conversation with ron & harwood in houston. we looked at 3/4 of the grey series together, and will continue tomorrow. we're going to figure out which ones will be shipped to houston. we'll continue talking tomorrow.

dimitri sent me a digital photo of this new painting by my grandson philip, who will be 10 in a few weeks. he shows a strong talent, and that's not because i'm his grandpa. his sense of composition, color, patterning, space are all way beyond his years. both mikela and i were blown away. 

as i said to his dad, i can't wait to walk through MOMA with him and watch his responses, especially to matisse and picasso's demoiselles d'avignon.
