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

“This weekend Addee came home from Washington with her friend Brady. I missed her so much. Just now she and Lisa gave me a critique of my recent stain paintings. They both agree they need to be grounded in some kind of content. They can’t just be pretty paintings. Why can’t they just be pretty paintings? I think I know what they’re talking about.
