I made a video right after Roo passed away. I talk more about my understanding of the universe and our place in it in this post.

I painted this tiny portrait for my mother, even though I know I’ve given her way too many paintings over the years. In making the painting, I realized that the gift wasn’t in the object itself but in the act of creating. I was sharing my grief with her by making the piece, and in sharing grief becomes a bit easier.

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
