 It is more like I am having an experience than I am making a picture.                                                     Artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011)

Artist Cy Twombly lived and worked on a hillside in Gaeta, Italy. In June 2008 a small group of artists, stayed in a villa there owned by Cy's friend and agent- Nicola Del Roscio. This is a sketch I did of our view of Cy's studio from our terrace. Cy said that each line he made was "the actual experience" of making the line, adding "It does not illustrate". It is the sensation of its own realization.”
