    I am saying a sad farewell to my painting studio which I have rented for thirty seven years. Here is what was a section of my studio wall. I called this "The Wall of Fame". It featured photos of paintings, composers, musicians, actors and comedians. Some of them were: Giulietta Massina, Cezanne, Thelonious Monk, El Greco, Samuel Beckett(obituary), Moondog, Jack Benny, a Fayoum portrait, the planet Saturn, "The Honeymooners", Matisse, Buster Keaton, Bob Dylan, Morandi, Morton Feldman, Charlie Chaplin, Malevitch, John Waters, Fra Angelico, Monet's palette, Anton Webern, Captain Beefheart, a baby shoe, and a toy blue rhinoceros. All these images kept me painting over the years. Every studio should also have it's own toy blue rhinocerous. Please click on the photo to enlarge it.
    This part of the wall included Cezanne, Rembrandt, De Hooch, Van der Weyden, Giotto, Velazquez and Vermeer reproductions as well as a Talmud page with an Agnes Martin obituary on top. Also an autographed John Waters photo for added humor.
