The blank page

I have moved from blogger to wordpress. It is part of that need for a fresh canvas, a white sheet of paper, the blank page. It coincides incidentally with a studio clear out. Unlike Francis Bacon  or Frank Auerbach whose studios in their accumulated layers, become works of art in themselves, I have the need every now and then to sweep out, reorder, organize, scrape off, clean up.  At the moment I seem destined to tread lightly, and in my studio also. It is a gift, a room of my own, a quiet space in the cacophany of this city, Istanbul but it is just for now.
