QUOTE OF THE DAY: Philip Guston

On the act of creating:

"I believe it was John Cage who once told me, 'When you start working, everybody is in your studio- the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas- all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you're lucky, even you leave.'"
- Philip Guston
