View from the window

Moving studio I  found an old 'Art in America' magazine, reading that painter James Bishop described his life in Paris 'as one in exile'. Now looking out through my studio window I get that feeling as I am sitting here, hidden round at the back of the park, behind the trees and it's very quiet. Cosy too but a little bit scary with the strange sound the wind is making. I like this bit, it says on the indifference of artists working in Paris they.... 'ripen more slowly there' Ashbery - gaining intelligence and benefiting from introspection.
