Time is so much present in one way or another in my work. The aging process. Death. The urgency one feels to celebrate before it’s too late.
Last night there was a warm wind at midnight. I thought, ‘I should roll down the lawn like I did with my daughters when we were young.’
But I could savor it, freeze it with my art, get it on paper.
