If our brothers and sisters are not safe. We are not safe.

This piece. The crow is working on her nest. 

making peace where there may not be. 

cherishing and valuing the materials around her.

Some really wonderful art collector friends of mine got this piece 

and wanted some sort of expansion of it. 


Thank you guys.

What a gift. 


and in line with their support and understanding 
they let me dream it up.

So I thought about where the crow was getting her flowers. 

About the work she was putting in.

She wasn't stopping at her nest. 










Let us never be so comfortable that we forget the suffering of others. 

For the sand will shift. 

And we too will feel the same 
on a different day.

Living.





HI.

I have more things to say.
 and I was saying them in other places but I like this place. 

So I am back here right now. or I am in Panera. depends on how you look at it. 


 I suddenly wanted to be here... like a regular at a diner. 
Which was a severely important goal of mine in college. that I accomplished. But look, we don't all have that kind of work ethic. 

I wanted to post an old image. because I saw it and wanted to...



and just say that I am thinking about things. All the time. 


I think part of my silence here is because Instagram was invented and it is fast and the writing space is small and less like an open field I have to sprint across and touch every part of.
Personal issue. 

 But also part is because the current climate has been heavy. Since the election. you know the one. 

and I have been deep in work. 



Wonderful morning. named by my nephew because I defer sometimes to people who see deeply and understand the important things. oil on canvas 30 x 30. sold.



I feel so fortunate to be an artist. 

And I feel so strongly that our job as artists, is to make important work. 
As human beings it is our job to act.

I am trying to make those things happen.

















i love music. almost more than everything.
