Willem DeKooning Studio

An awful lot has been said since DeKooning's passing and about the current Show at MOMA (etc). I'm certainly not qualified to add anything to that, other than to say that I have a beautiful and distinct memory of being quite inspired by his work when I was a child and wanted to experience what seemed like total abandon in painting. I've since learned, of course that his "expressionism" was quite planned and thought out, which is very reassuring to me now.

Be that as it may, the images from an Architectural Digest Shoot of his studio are also very inspiring. What would it be like to paint ion that space ?
