Advice from Patti Smith

Patti Smith - words of wisdom. Thought this would be a nice way to start the week.


Orly Genger at Madison Square Park

Nothing like coming across public art to brighten up my daily route in the city.  I love the art program at Madison Square Park. It's always engaging work that allows me to pause for a few minutes and enjoy. Currently on view is an installation by Orly Genger. It'll be up through September 8, 2013. Take a minute to walk through the park if you're in New York - then you can stop and get a burger and milk shake at Shake Shack.




I've been working on this new series of drawings in the studio. I find the process of making them to be meditative- allowing me to just make the pieces without having to think too much. I am realizing that this is the secret to the creative process- not thinking. So one of the tricks I've set up for myself is to have these drawings I can work on - as an ongoing project- and a place to land in the studio when I don't have a full day or am in between paintings and want to be able to make something complete.
