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

“First I have to clearly state it. Donald Trump is the president elect of the United States. That fact has caused this week to feel unreal. Stranger and worse than after 9/11 and feeling deeply connected to that time. I’ve been to two protest marches already, and I’m utterly at a loss except that I spent part of today applying to go to Rome for a year. Italy survived Berlusconi. I’m wondering whether the U.S. will be as lucky.
