When I was in New York last weekend, I had to go over to my friend John’s house to pick up an unsold painting from a show he curated back in December. I came back to Sara’s apartment and put the painting on top of the bookshelf. It looked really, really good amongst her things. When she saw it, she too thought it looked good in her house. So I suggested we to an indefinite temporary trade, a painting for a painting. The painting I got from her is this one on the left, and it’s something I fell in love with when I first saw it years ago. It’s a drawing on chalkboard paint. It’s so simple and so lovely. I can’t pinpoint why I love it so much, but it gives me feelings. And now it’s in my house!
