It's a good day for painters/it's a good day to be in the studio painting, so pardon the brevity of this post...

The MacArthur Foundation gave two of its awards to painters this year...Mark Bradford (yes, I consider him a painter) and Rackstraw Downes.

I am particularly thrilled about Mark Bradford; I saw his work in person a couple of years ago, and I was blown away, undeniably.  I actually can't think of a contemporay artist whose work has so impacted me physically and conceptually.  He has been hugely important to my thinking on the studio ever since.
