I am spending my days working away on my new paintings and at night I am reading Eric Fischl's memoir. He starts out remembering the night of his retrospective at the Whitney Museum in the 80's. He mentions that Alex Katz had a show on the floor above. As soon as I read that, I realized that I had actually seen those shows in person just before moving out west.
I am reading it as an ibook (on my ipad) which enables me to look up paintings and people mentioned in the book as I go. So far, it's a fascinating read!
