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

“I love being at the studio with no one in the building. My show at Cohan has gotten such a satisfying response from people whose opinion matters to me. I meant to keep working on these stain paintings (which I will), but my studio is in a chaos of skin paintings and other directions, which actually feels good. And meditation, maybe, is starting to break through to something else in preparation for Twentyninepalms in a few weeks.
