a day off / by Philip Tarlow

6:46 PM: this morning friends came for a breakfast of walnut/blueberry pancakes with fresh peach compote. the conversation was stimulating, funny, inspiring. then we just hung out, watched the tennis finals, relaxed. this is new for us. we never take days off. 

i hung the just completed irma in the house today, next to the drawing tsarouchis gave me. i wanted to see what it looked like in a setting other than the studio. first impression, it looks good! as i said yesterday, looking at this one in the studio hanging next to turtle island, on the LEFTit became clear that turtle island needs more work. too fuzzy. yhe forms are not as clearly defined as they need to be. so that may be what i'm up to tomorrow.
