Raw Material





Robert's work table: T-square, tracing paper, photos of people on
 the street, painting, drawing. An assemblage of stuff to be turned into
 something else entirely.



Buster and Vladimir Putin on 22nd Street.
 A poet, someone once said, is someone who looks at
 one thing and thinks of another.

Too much philosphy for a Monday morning.

Love the poet quote.

Robert's work space is fascinating. I always love to see art in progress.

And how cool is the pic of Buster and Putin?

Buster is surely a poet.

Jeane said...

not too much at all - I always need a quick start on Mondays and this was just right!

Leenie said...

Artists, poets, philosophers and dogs. All look at one thing and think of another. Thanks for something fun to think about.

I think Buster is looking for somewhere to go to do something unrelated to Mr Putin ..

What an interesting work table! I hope you show us what this turns into.

Willow said...

Summer Monday mornings are for blogging and drinking coffee! And walking with Buster.

Too much philosophy? Impossible!

Elizabeth, I loved the quote about a poet. Both You and Robert qualify. The High Line trip will become a series of postings. Writing just about the plantings is really not enough. Thanks for a wonderful outing.

A brief post -- and yet so mentally expansive, too!

I've been thinking of you so much today. I'm LOVING The Three Graces, which has so much of your charming voice and philosophy in it.

Is Buster then a Poet?

Janelle said...

not to sound like a stuck record or anything but i LOVE your blog..its so dreamy...and captures NYC and the life and the people but more than that, it captures something bigger, more universal...i love it. thanks! XXX j

How dim am I? I didn't realise it was Putin at first - I thought it was the actor Clive Owen looking a bit tired!

The top strip of images of contemporary American makes me think ancient Roman, dressed in togas - at first, I thought it might be a take on an ancient painting! Nonetheless, from the little I know, your painting, Robert, seems to be in a state of change.

I like the beginnings of Robert's art work. Should be interesting to see the end product.

Cute Buster. Interesting quote.
