For those of us that feel less than tidy as concerns our studios....here is a glimpse of the late great Francis Bacon & HIS studio.

Thanks David, I feel better now, but I'm comparing my studio to a crazy person's.

David, I saw these years ago when I was in college and fell in love. This guy is my HERO! I'll never live up to that, NEVER! I'm workin' on it!

I think I'd have a nervous breakdown if forced to work at length in this, uh... earthquake zone. God bless his incredible work though. Tea and biscuits at four, then?

you know, i was checking out wikipedia the other day and it said that the leaf blower was originally invented to tidy-up bacon's studio. it didn't work, so then everyone started using it on their lawns. who knew?

dg: i think it would take more than the jaws of life to extract even the SLIGHTEST grin out of bacon's face. it's really strange, because he was always known for being such a bon vivant, charmer and effervescent personality at the society functions -- and his impression of sammy davis, jr:? DEAD ON! bs ps: you ever check out the bootleg of him singing 'This Was A Real Nice Clam Bake' from Carousel? A little "tinny", but the passion -- oh, it's there. bs

Come on Joe! Tell us a story! I love them! Joe, chillin' with the master! Is there anybody Joe doesn't know?

Oh god! I'm doubling over here. You gotta know Joe! He usually starts a conversation with: Did you know... One time I was... There's this place... I sat through many a 3 hour critique with Joe, and it was always a trip! Who the hell is Don Mclean? That's another thing, Joe drops a name, and wide eyed 19 year olds in the class go, "HUH?"
