September 15     Warhol Wouldn’t Be   There is no trick to art.  If I work to make my pieces fit with the familiar I lose my individuality.  If I make what is truly me I fear there is no line in which to stand.  I must make the work, find the market, live life and die...

Do you keep a diary, or do posts on Facebook or Twitter suffice for you? I sometimes think of my blog as a diary in addition to being BLATANT SELF-PROMOTION (hey, it's Tuesday, so I have to slip that in at least once), but it's still a record open to the world in more or less real time. Reading...

In 1968, film maker and pop art legend Andy Warhol memorably stated: ‘In the future, everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes’.I can clearly remember him saying these words. I was only twenty-four at the time, fresh out of the British Army’s Royal Corp of Signals, and steeped in the pop...

    I had someone take this photo a week ago without having any plan like blogging.  But I’m glad I did.  It’s always something.  While surfing Facebook a few days ago, I saw a photo of Andy Warhol and Pat Montandon on her wall.  It reminded me of my photo with Lo...

I just came across a rejection letter from the Museum of Art, politely declining the donation of a painting by an artist. The letter is dated October 18, 1956, and the reason stated is "severely limited gallery and storage space." The artist is no less than ... Andy Warhol. The painting...

Okay, now that you've had your evening glass of wine, and that hot bath, you're maybe ready for a bedtime story, so what comes to mind is the time I saw Andy Warhol walking down Madison Avenue (Mad, for short). Yes, that's right, it was, I'm guessing, somewhere around 1980, and I was somewhere...

 I came across this wonderful interview with Jane Dillenberger, an art historian who teaches at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, on creativity, prayer and the spirituality of Andy Warhol. (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2008/05/05/findrelig.DTL) I believe many writers...
