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

“Today is Ella’s last organized soccer game. It must be heartbreaking and bittersweet, especially since she found Claremont F.C. And it’s the end of an era for me in the sense that so many of these paintings mentioned her exploits on the field. From now on her focus will be on ocean science. So many aspects of our lives are changing. It's time for me to concentrate simply on making a good painting, and, increasingly, to begin to write.
