first sketch for vertical scroll / 4 of my paintings hanging in a crestone/baca home / by Philip Tarlow

2:54 PM: this is the first sketch on paper for a planned 80” tall scroll on unprimed linen i’m planning. what will it be? strips of unprimed belgian linen 84” high, maybe 24” wide. 4 interocnnected events drawing on rocks & water; motion series; sky series and as yet undiscovered riffs on my old friend taiga, who knew. an 11th century calligraphic rapper whose early teachers were chinese. whose hand was connected to the stars.

here are 4 shots of my paintings hanging in a home in crestone/baca.
