the image here is one of Philip Guston’s artworks not as written. he happens to be one of my most favorite of all artists of all time . . .he is definitely a study in overcoming obstacles and excellence in his field inspite of finding his father dead from suicide and then his older brother died too. he rose to be a prominent abstract expressionist and later a figurative painter using his personal history to the world. his father was a trash collector so often there are discarded shoes in the trash.
