Excerpts From Michael Davidson, 26
Lou's Café, August, .06
I'm sitting down to breakfast, at 53rd and Sixth Avenue. I'm thinking about '26' and wondering how it will hold up as a document of the last several years. It should work out. I've left it in the hands of people I trust.

Michael Davidson, ArtistAs far as definition of process, where I have been with the paintings, and the nature of the '26' location in Toronto, homebase, my residence and studio, I think it's all there, maybe in between the lines.

Before I cross the road and go in to take a close look at de Kooning's 1950-52 'Woman I', one of the most laboured paintings I know of, I'm also wondering what my next paintings will look like. There is of course, no way to tell. And that's alright. I've never wanted to know anything beforehand....
