Hanging with Norah, Natalie, and Louis, it’s what I needed after a crescendoing year with Art Basel as the finale! I’m enjoying a bowl of my first homemade chicken noodle soup. Not bad! A week off from painting and I’m missing it. Inspiration has been building, thoughts of the exciting new year bubble. As I rest in my leather chair, I notice it’s still crisp and new after a year, I can’t sit for long, with new blank canvases to butter with oil paint, I’m fresh and ready to get back into the studio!
