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

“Lisa expressed her disappointment in me earlier this week, so I have been trying harder. I need to become less attached, emotionally, to how my studio work is going. There’s no point in making Lisa and Addee miserable.  I wonder if Emmett and Ella appreciate being away from my studio anxiety and my winter moodiness. Ironically, I’ve had great energy on this miserably cold day. At least the sun’s out.
