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

“Was I up to the challenge of today’s sky? Perhaps not. I keep making excuses about how much better I’ll be when I’m old and just doing this one thing. Meanwhile, I am trying to make stain paintings that have to do with bruising and damage and maybe, even, the cosmos.
