some photos from a sleepy cloudy winter sunday.

"night swimming"
night swimming, almost finished. this came to me last night and i worked on it almost nonstop. i think everyone remembers a night when they stood with their toes in the surf, gazing out into the wild dark black sea...

gracie
when i graduated college, my mom flew out to massachusetts with her and we were reunited. she is an amazing buddy to have around in the studio when i have to work alone and is hilarious to watch. its surprising how much you can share with something that can't even communicate with you :)
