A 14 × 14 inch, acrylic painting of the sky. A journal entry is handwritten on the painting:

“In less than two hours Emmett will find out if he got into Yale. Meanwhile I’m working on some paintings to show to dealers to convince them to sign me on. It’s all quite nerve-wracking, but I manage to have some distance on it all. It’s been freezing-cold, but I haven’t been as blue this winter as usual. Not sure why.
