🎨Recently visited this old friend in NYC while it's on loan from a collector. "Patience, Cocoons are Temporary" is hanging in the Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Ave. until June 1st, then heading to the MEAM Museum, Barcelona from Sept 23 - Nov 27 as part of the ARC International Exhibit (admission is free if you'd like to stop in). I loved seeing paintings included from so many places around the world.

I know it's spring when the barn swallows begin their early morning aerial ballet in the backyard. I think this one enjoyed teasing my camera with it's speedy wings.

My little girl is turning three. Most mornings she dresses up like she's going to a ball only to run outdoors barefoot, minutes later, calling me to join her "adventure club!" and explore a muddy field 💕. I've never felt time move so quickly, I've never been more grateful for photos to freeze the moments that I can. \\ Nara, Japan from the archives

My two year old daughter asked me one morning where the (other) stars go when the sun rises. I tried explaining they don't leave the sky, but we just can't see them during the day. She was pretty disappointed by this thought, so we decided to imagine we have the ability to see every star shining all the time, no matter what. I can't even begin to tell you how much awe I have for her version of the world. ✨ | eight inch #oilpainting
