“This is my altar. That’s the palette I use every day. Those are my paints, my dip cans, my medium in the old rye whiskey bottle. The bread, wine and cheese set-up. This is something I do a thousand times a day: put my palette down, step back, take a break, see where I’m at.

When you put a palette down with brushes in it, you get the lifted angle that you see here. That’s something only a painter would know. If you put the brushes down separately and they’re dirty they’ll roll paint everywhere and land on the oor. So you keep them in the palette and when you pick them up again you can grab them by the neck, like Johnny Cash holds a guitar.”
